February is Food for Fines Month

Food for Fines

Bring in food, reduce your fines!

It’s back! Reduce or eliminate library overdue fines by bringing in cans or boxes of food during the month of February.

Each can or box will be worth a 50 cent credit on overdue fines, subject to the approval of library staff. All food will be donated to Wilsonville Community Sharing for the assistance of needy area families.

Preferred donations are canned goods (such as tuna, fruit, and hearty soups) and boxed goods (especially hot or cold cereals).

Please check expiration dates carefully! The food bank cannot accept or use expired food.

And please, leave the ramen at home.

For more information, contact the Reference Desk at 503-682-2744 or reference@wilsonvillelibrary.org.

Bring in food, reduce your fines!

Here’s your last chance to donate a can (or box) of unexpired food and receive 50 cents off your overdue fees. This offer is good through today (February 28, 2013).

So come on down! And while you’re at the library, you can drop off your Wilsonville Special Election ballot, check out some books and movies, and pick up an Adult Winter Reading Program Tic-Tac-Toe card (the deadline for entering is coming up soon).

For the month of February, bring in a can or box of food and receive a 50 cent credit towards your overdue fines (subject to library staff approval). All food donations will go to Wilsonville Community Sharing to help local families in need.

What you need to know:

  • For every can or box of food (not-expired) you bring to the library, 50 cents will be waived from your library account*.
  • The waived fees are only for overdue fines. “Food for Fines” does not apply to lost or damaged item charges.
