The Belk Library Student Advisory Group (in cooperation with Library Administration) will be doing a service learning project by sponsoring a "Food for Fines" drive beginning Monday, December 12th at 7:30 am until Dec 20th at 6 pm.
Starting Monday, 12/12, we will be accepting 1 canned food item for every $1.00 (or partial part of a $1.00) owed on fines up to $15.00. NOTE: Fines that have already been sent to Student Accounts are not eligible for this offer. Canned good cannot be credited toward lost book charges.
Here’s what you do:
- If you have an overdue fine here at the library, bring one can of nonperishable food to the Main Circulation Desk.
- Tell the staff member that you are going to pay your fines with food. You will be assessed one can of food per $1.00 (or part of a 1.00) of fines up to a total of $15.00.
- Your account will be cleared up to $15.00. Ask for a receipt.
It’s that simple!
Even if you don't owe fines, we will accept canned foods for donation to the Hunger Coalition until December 20th.
We are excited about this partnership and hope you will help make this a rousing success and help us feed those in need locally!!
