UPDATE: Because of the snow last week, I just learned that the Food for Fines program at the Nashville Library was extended through January 27th! We just dropped off our cans last week. What a great way to start the year – by wiping out any of those lingering fines (not that I ever have any fines or anything 😉
Read the details from the library below:
Food for Fines: January 10 – 27, 2011
Exchange canned goods & other foods for library overdue fines to help Second Harvest Food Bank during Food for Fines week, January 10 – 27, 2011, at Nashville Public Library.
Library members will get $1 in current fines* waived for each can or package of food donated during the drive, held at all Nashville Public Library locations.
Items especially needed include:
- peanut butter
- canned meats (tuna fish, beef stew)
- canned vegetables and fruit
- macaroni and cheese
- rice and pasta
Bring canned goods, or items in boxes or plastic bags or jars (no glass can be accepted) to the circulation desk at your library. Don’t forget to bring your library card!
* Replacement fees for lost or damaged materials, fees for losses that are in billing or collection stages, and lost card fees are not included in the food drive.
