Pay Off Your Library Fines With Food!

July is “Food for Fines” month at the library.  For every non-perishable item donated, adults can get $1 off overdue fines.  The maximum is $25.00, it’s only on adult cards, and it only applies to overdue fines- not lost or damaged items.  And of course, we will take items for the St Louis Area Foodbank, even if you don’t have fines. 🙂


These are the items they need the most:


Canned meat, canned fruit/soups/chili, rice and beans, pasta, macaroni and cheese, canned vegetables, plastic-bottled baby food, hot and cold cereal, baby formula, peanut butter, AND soap/lotion, shampoo, toothpaste, feminine products, diapers and baby products.  Only rule- no glass items.
