Thursday, April 30, 2020

Food for Fines

Saturday, April 25, 2020
All Locations
Celebrate National Library Week and support your community with a donation of food. 

Your donations go to the Second Harvest Food Bank and other regional food banks serving Spokane County and reduce your overdue fees! 

For every non-perishable item of food, $2 will be forgiven from a cardholder’s account, up to a maximum of $20 per library account. Food for Fines can only be applied to overdue and/or damaged item fees. It cannot be applied to lost-item charges or accounts referred to collection. 

You don’t need a fine to donate. Anyone can bring in a nonperishable food item to help households and children facing food insecurity. 

Food insecurity occurs when people run out of food, eat less, skip meals, go hungry, or when they subsist on a nutrient-poor diet because they cannot afford to buy food. This is especially critical for children and directly impacts their ability to stay focused during the school day and succeed academically. 

This April keep a look out for the Second Harvest food bins at all Spokane County Library District locations.
