Food for Fines is back!

June 1 - 7: All HMCPL branches will offer Food for Fines! For each non-perishable food item you bring in, we'll forgive $1 in overdue fines from your library card.

The donated canned and boxed goods will benefit those in need of service through the Salvation Army.

Please note: the library will only accept new, unopened cans and boxes of food within the expiration date. It will take 4 packages of ramen noodles to equal $1 in overdue fines. Charges for lost or damaged items cannot be waived.

Some quick facts about Food for Fines:

  • We'll collect cans from Tuesday, June 1 through Monday, June 7.
  • All library locations are participating.
  • Food will be donated to the Salvation Army
