Food for Fines


Food for Fines Week: November 16-24, 2019

For each sealed, non-expired food donation brought in (maximum of 25 items), the library marks $2 of overdue fines as paid. All food donations benefit the AFSCME Local 459 Needy Family Fund.

How does this work?

  • Visit a New Castle County library during normal business hours.
  • Present a qualified, sealed, non-expired food donation at the circulation desk (maximum of 25 items.
  • For each donation, $2 of overdue fines will be removed from your account.

Good for overdue fines only. Accounts with charges for lost, billed, or damaged items cannot use the amnesty program to cover those items. This program ends when the library closes on Sunday, November 24, 2019.
