Food for Fines

The popular Food for Fines program returns just in time for fall graduation. From November 16 to December 31, bring your food to the library between 8 a.m.-5 p.m., Monday-Friday. Remember, one food item equals $3 of forgiven fines. All Food for Fines donations will go to the student food pantry.
