Food For Fines

Food for Fines April 14 - 19, 2014
You bring the food, we’ll waive the fines!

Pay off your library fines with food instead of cash! Bring in 1 can of food and we’ll waive $1.00 of your library fines.

One food item = $1.00 in fines

Bring your food donation to the Circulation Desk at any of the Chesapeake Public Libraries anytime during the week of April 14 - April 19, 2014. Fines will be waived for donations from the following list of acceptable items:

• Canned fruits or vegetables
• Boxed pasta, rice, or dried beans
• Canned meat, fish, or poultry
• Boxed cereal, baking mix, or syrup
• Canned soup (no dry, packaged soup)
• Peanut butter or jelly

Only non-perishable, undamaged, labeled items will be accepted. We cannot accept glass containers, candy, home baked, or home canned goods.

Please check the expiration date on any items you are donating. We cannot accept food with expired dates.

Food for Fines applies to fines on returned library materials only, not for replacement fees or lost/damaged items. No rain checks given for future fines.

All food donated during the drive will be given to Chesapeake food pantries for distribution.

Additional donations are always welcome!
