Food For Fines



Food for Fines
Spokane County Library District announces the 3rd annual Food for Fines event during National Library Week, April 12-18, 2015.For every non-perishable item of food, $1.00 will be forgiven from a cardholder’s account, up to a maximum of $10.00 per card. Fees eligible for the program include accumulated overdue charges and fees for damaged items, unless the account is already in collections.

Last year, staff welcomed hundreds of members who donated thousands of pounds of food to 2nd Harvest and other regional food banks serving Spokane County. In many cases, our generous members contributed much more to the food barrels than needed to pay their fines. Some had no overdue fees at all, but still contributed food throughout National Library Week.

This April watch for the food bins at your neighborhood County library. It’s a win-win for everyone!
