Food for Fines

If you are avoiding the library because of your overdue fines, now is your chance to start 2020 with a fresh slate. The Hillside Public Library is erasing library fines in exchange for canned and boxed food donations. The food drive will run from January 2 – January 31.

During this period, library patrons are encouraged to bring undamaged, unopened, and unexpired boxed or canned non-perishable food items. Each single food item will be applied as a $1 credit toward the reduction of existing overdue fines. Most-needed items include canned meat, peanut butter, canned fruit, canned vegetables, and boxed meals. The Food for Fines program is only applicable to library overdue fines. No other fees are eligible.
