Tigard Public Library

Food for Fines

Tigard Library’s Food For Fines is Back in 2018
 Sunday, April 8—Saturday, April 14

Food for Fines

Library patrons will be able to clear or reduce their fines during the Tigard Library’s Food for Fines program from Sunday, April 8, through Saturday, April 14. For every one non-perishable item they donate, they can remove $1 of fines from their account, up to $10.

The food will be donated to the St. Vincent DePaul food pantry in Tigard, which will distribute it to local families in need. 

Acceptable donations include:

  • Canned meats (tuna, chicken, salmon etc.)
  • Canned and boxed meals (chili, soup, macaroni and cheese etc.)
  • Peanut butter
  • Pasta, rice and cereal
  • Canned fruits
  • 100% fruit juices
  • Baby food
The Library cannot accept homemade, perishable, open or unlabeled items or rusty cans. Donated food can only be used to reduce fines, not other library charges. The Food for Fines program only comes once a year. Take a bite out of hunger and your fines at the same time. 

Reduce Your Library Fines and Take a Bite Out of Hunger.
