The Spokane County Library District will be accepting food donations for Second Harvest in lieu of fines during National Library Week, April 9-15.
For every nonperishable item of food, $2 will be forgiven from a cardholder’s account, up to a maximum of $20 per library account. Food for Fines dollars are applied to fees for overdue and/or damaged items and cannot be applied to lost-item charges or accounts referred to collection.
Since 2013, the library district has collected more than 16,000 pounds of food and forgiven over $15,000 in fines.
