2017 Food for Fines

Have some late fines that you need to pay off? Lucky you! It’s time for our annual Food for Fines drive, and you can clear your account by donating canned food items to your local library branch.

Library patrons may “pay” library overdue fines with a canned food item. This will help re-stock food banks in Dade and Walker County Georgia. Please help us as we give back to our community during the holiday season. Items collected will be donated to Tri State Food Bank, The Cottage, the Care Mission and the Rossville Church of Christ Food Pantry.

One canned food item equals $1.00 in paid fines with a limit of 10 cans (or $10 in fines). Lost or damaged book fees may not be paid with food. Food items must be in good condition and unexpired.
