Food for Fines 2013

Food For FinesThank you to all students who donates a non-perishable food item to an OC Campus Library and had their Library fines forgiven! Food for fines ran November 25 to December 14, 2013. 

How Food for Fines works:

  • Each food item pays off $2 in Library fines, to a maximum of $20.
  • Fines applied to all types of materials are eligible including books, DVDs, videos, and CDs.
  • Food for Fines does not apply if you have an overdue, lost or damaged item. Note: Do you have an overdue item?  Return that item and then use Food-for-Fines. 
  • Any OC library user, whether student or community user, can ‘cash-in’ a non-perishable pre-packaged food item.
  • Food items cannot be cashed in against future fines.
  • Previously paid fines will not be refunded in exchange for food items.
