Food for Fines

Food for Fines @ the Fairfield Public Library

Food_for_finesThe Fairfield Public Library, Fairfield Woods Branch Library, and Pequot Library will be hosting a “Food for Fines” drive beginning Saturday, February 7 through Saturday, February 14, 2015.

For 8 days only, the libraries will waive fines on overdue materials in exchange for food items to benefit the Operation Hope Food Pantry. For each overdue library item returned February 7 through February 14, the libraries will forgive all associated fines in exchange for a single food item listed on the Operation Hope website. This does not apply to overdue Library museum passes, damaged materials, or items that have already been billed for replacement. The Main Library, Fairfield Woods Branch Library, and Pequot Library will gladly accept donations even if there are no fines to be waived.

For a list of items accepted, visit the Operation Hope website.
