Food for Fines

November 1 - December 12


Patrons may bring undamaged, unexpired boxed or canned non-perishable food items to any library location and, for each single donated food item, will receive a $2 reduction in overdue fines. We will also accept non-food items, such as toothpaste, toilet paper, diapers, and soap (excluding trial/travel size). All donations go directly to the Oasis Food Pantry, which serves citizens right here in our community. For further ways to support Oasis Food Pantry, please follow this link!

We will not accept damaged or expired items, nor individual servings of ramen noodles -- but multi-packs are great!

The Food for Fines program is only applicable to library overdue fines. No other fees are eligible.

There is a particularly high need for these pantry list items:

  • Jelly
  • Soup
  • Canned Tuna
  • Instant Mashed Potatoes
  • Chili (with or without beans)
  • Oatmeal / Grits / Cream of Wheat
