Food for Fines

The popular Food for Fines program returns just in time for May graduation. From April 17 through May 15, bring your food to the Library between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday through Friday. Remember, one food item = $3.00 of forgiven fines, up to $30. Only non-perishable food items are accepted – e.g. ramen noodles, canned soup, and boxed cereal. All Food for Fines donations go to the student food pantry.

Donate Textbooks & Leisure Reading

Are you finished with some textbooks or doing some spring cleaning of paperbacks? Consider donating your books to the Library. We accept gently-used textbooks (older editions welcome). Bring your donations to the Library Front Desk. Leisure books are accepted in the donation box at the Leisure Reading area.
