Food For Fines

Food for Fines

The Meadows Valley Public Library will be having a “Food for Fines” exchange to begin on Tuesday, October 14th, and ending Friday, November 14th, 2014. During this period, the library will accept non-perishable groceries as payment for fines on all overdue items.  The program will be a one-for-one exchange: a single grocery item will cover the fine for a single item that was returned late or that is now overdue. There is no limit on the number or amount of fines that can be cleared or on the number of overdue items that can be returned.

Charges for lost, damaged or items that have not been returned will not be included in this program.

Collected non-perishable food items will be given to the New Meadows Food Bank to assist families in the New Meadows area.  Patrons who have no fines to pay, but who would like to participate are encouraged to bring donations to the library. For additional information, please contact the Meadows Valley Public Library at 347-3147.
