Food for Fines at Tualatin Public Library

The Tualatin Public Library's annual Food for Fines program starts March 10 and runs through March 16, 2018.

If you have any overdue library fines, now is the time to start getting your account in order, and all you will need to bring is a can of food*.

The Food for Fines campaign allows Tualatin patrons with overdue fines to donate canned goods in exchange for fine forgiveness. For each pound of food you bring in, you will receive a one dollar voucher to redeem against overdue fines.

The Tualatin School House Pantry is excited to partner with the library as March is the month donations fall to their lowest levels all year.

Most needed items are :
  • Baby food
  • 100% fruit juices
  • Canned fruit and vegetables
  • Peanut butter and jelly
  • Boxed meals
  • Boxed macaroni and cheese
  • Sugar
  • Meat: canned tuna, chicken, turkey, roast beef and even Spam are popular!
  • Powdered laundry detergent
  • Toothpaste, shampoo, bar soap

*Maximum donation allowed is 10 lbs per card holder.
