Food For Fines

January 22

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every day that begins at 12:00 am, repeating until February 29, 2020

Start the new year off with a clean slate and help your neighbors! Beginning in January, the Provincetown Public Library will continue one of its most well-received initiatives every year: the Food for Fines program. Food for Fines enables patrons facing overdue fines to get a fresh start and directly benefit members of our community by donating food or personal care items in place of Library late fees.

Please bring non perishable food items, personal care items, and/or fresh, uncut produce for the Library’s Crop Swap Fridge to the main circulation desk to participate in this great program! Be sure to check the dates on each item to ensure that no food items are passed their expiration date. Each donated item will remove $5 worth of your fines. All goods will be given to local food pantries or to the Crop Swap Fridge. The Food for Fines program will run until February 29.
