MCCPL Kicks Off Food For Fines Campaign on April 7!!

Food for Fines

April 7 – May 12, 2019

 

The Montgomery City-County Public Library’s annual Food For Fines Campaign will run for five weeks, from April 7 through May 12 at all ten MCCPL libraries.

Here’s how it works: Bring in a minimum of 13 ounces of non-perishable, canned food items with EACH overdue book or overdue media item (i.e. DVD, CD, book-on-tape, etc.) during the campaign. Your overdue fine will be forgiven and your record will be cleared for that item. Overdue items must be returned at the same time as your canned food donation.

The general public is invited to join our staff and patrons by dropping off non-perishable, canned food items to your nearest MCCPL library during this campaign. Look for the big blue barrel! Your donation is greatly appreciated. Since MCCPL began Food for Fines in 2001, more than 16,000 overdue items have been returned to the library and the community has donated thousands of pounds of food for the Montgomery Area Food Bank.

Montgomery City-County Public Library is proud to partner with the Montgomery Area Food Bank to help feed individuals and families in need across Alabama. The Montgomery Area Food Bank is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit, doing everything possible to combat hunger and food insecurity in 35 of Alabama’s 67 counties through a framework of philanthropic, logistic and educational programs. We connect people, food and resources to satisfy emergent hunger needs, while targeting healthier outcomes and self-sufficiency.
