Tigard Library offers annual 'Food for Fines' program
Tigard Public Library users can take a bite out of their fines next week at the librarys annual "Food for Fines" drive, which runs from Sunday, March 20, to Saturday, March 26.
For each donated non-perishable food item, the library will forgive $1 of fines, up to $10.
The library will donate the food to the St. Vincent de Paul food pantry in Tigard.
Acceptable donations include:
Canned and boxed meals
Pasta, rice and cereal
100 percent fruit juice
The library cannot accept homemade, perishable, open or unlabeled items, rusty cans, or items past their expiration date.
Food for Fines applies only to fines, not other library charges.
Last year, library users donated more than 3,400 pounds of food to the food pantry.
