National Library Week is April 10th – 16th and the Phoenix Public Libraries is celebrating by once again helping you get out of debt – at least when it comes to overdue books.
Come into any of the 15 Phoenix Public Library locations from April 9th to April 24th with canned or non-perishable food items for St. Mary’s Food Bank Alliance and the library will wipe out any outstanding fines.
During “Food for Fines,” you’ll receive a 50-cent credit per canned or non-perishable food toward your library fines. A maximum of $50 can be paid with donated food. “Food for Fines” does not apply to lost items or collections.
The program has collected as much as 24,000 pounds of food in past years – so we know you’ve been waiting for this chance to get right with your favorite librarian! Library branches taking part in the “Food for Fines” program that benefit St. Mary’s Food Bank Alliance include:
Burton Barr Main Branch – 1221 North Central Avenue, Phoenix
