‘Food for Fines’ serves a good cause

Did you return your books a little late? Your opportunity to pay off fines and help a good cause is here. From Nov. 12-30 Bierce, Science and Technology, and the Law libraries are sponsoring their semiannual “Food for Fines” drive to support the Akron-Canton Regional Foodbank’s “Harvest for Hunger” Campaign.

Here’s the deal: 1 food item = $1 toward your fines, and there’s no limit to the number of items that you may bring to the circulation desks at each library. This offer cannot be used to pay for items that are lost or billed to your library account. Also, we cannot accept perishable, expired, or damaged food items. Stop by for more information.

Since 2004, more than 20,000 pounds of food has been collected by UA Libraries for those in need.
