UC Libraries Presents Food for Fines

food for finesNow through December 19th, donate food items for the Freestore Foodbank and reduce your library fine up to $5!

One good deed deserves another…

For each non-perishable food item brought to a participating UC library location (see list below), $1 will be subtracted from library fines (up to $5).

Participating libraries:

The details:

  • Patrons who wish to have their fines reduced should bring their donations to the attention of library staff at participating library service desks and complete a Food for Fines card, which will ask for their name, M number and the number of food items they are donating.
  • One non-perishable food item = $1.00 and applies only to fines (not lost/replacement fees).
  • The maximum fine reduction per person is $5.00.
  • Food items cannot be homemade, dented or expired.
  • Everyone may donate food even if they don’t have fines.
  • Fines will not be deducted immediately, but all adjustments will be made before the beginning of next semester.
  • UC Libraries staff members will collect and deliver food to the Freestore Foodbank.

Food for Fines is sponsored by UC Libraries’ Staff Advisory Council. For more information, contact June Taylor-Slaughter 513 556 1587 / taylorju@uc.edu.
