Food for Fines Drive and Library Card Swap Scheduled for Month of September
Through the month of September, all public libraries in Jefferson County will be participating in a food drive that helps support local charities by replenishing food pantries in anticipation of the coming holidays.
How does it work?
One dollar in fines will be waived for each food item donated in September for up to $10.00 per library card holder. The donations will go toward fines only, not lost/damaged materials. The drive is open to all who wish to participate. Expiration dates must be visible and legible on all items; expired food will not be accepted.
When and where can donations be made?
Donations will be accepted at all 40 Jefferson County public libraries during September 2017. Visit the Public Libraries in Jefferson County's website for more information.
Food for Fines is held in conjunction with the annual National Library Card Sign-Up Month. In September, cardholders can trade in their old card for a keychain card or receive a replacement for a worn out card without paying the usual $3.00 fee.
