Do you have a book or ten that you forgot to turn in on time this semester? Now is your chance to reduce your fines, and help feed a hungry family this holiday season at the same time.
From now through Friday January 11, the William H. Hannon Library is hosting Food for Fines.
For every food item that you bring in (rice, beans, peanut butter, canned meats, canned fruits, and canned vegetables are most needed), you can reduce your library fines* by $2. (That's $2 for each item donated!)
All donations will go to directly to the Los Angeles Regional Foodbank, a non-profit organization at the heart of a charitable food distribution network that includes over 900 charitable agency sites throughout Los Angeles County.
To exchange your food for fines, please bring your donation items to the library Circulation Desk on Level 1. (Donations also happily accepted by those who don't have fines! Look for the LA Foodbank donation boxes around the library.)
*Please note that replacement charges for lost materials are not included in Food for Fines.
