Food for Fines

Fine forgiveness during the month of February at the Garfield County Libraries

Your Garfield County Libraries are excited to bring back the popular Food for Fines program. According to Feeding America, around one in ten people in Garfield County experience food insecurity on a daily basis and it is important to us to help out.

During the month of February you can bring in non-perishable food items to any of the six Garfield County Libraries and receive $1 credit toward your current library card balance. All food will be given to the local LIFT-UP, who suggests boxed macaroni and cheese, canned fruit and vegetables, cereal, and hearty chili as items they need the most. Food items cannot be expired.

So, check your cupboards, clear out your fines, and do some good in your community!
