“Food for Fines” Returns to Santa Clarita Public Library in September

| Community | August 29, 2019

During the month of September, the Santa Clarita Public Library will host the “Food for Fines” program in partnership with the Santa Clarita Valley Food Pantry, Salvation Army and Santa Clarita Grocery. This month-long program will allow customers to donate food items to remove up to $20 of overdue library fines or replacement card fees from their account. Donations are being gathered for local non-profit organizations that work to collect and distribute donated foods to those in need in the community.

Each Santa Clarita Public Library branch will have a donation collection barrel set up near the service desk. Customers are encouraged to donate as many food items as they want. Each item grants the customer up to $5 to use toward a library fine or replacement card fee, but please note that $20 is the maximum amount that can be waived per account.

According to the Santa Clarita Public Library’s non-profit partners, most-needed donation items include canned foods, dry goods and select toiletry items. However, all donation items are welcome. For a full list of needed items, please visit SantaClaritaLibrary.com.
