Food for Fines Month at Meriden Public Library


Meriden Public Library will host its annual “Food for Fines” month until Tuesday, Dec. 31. You may “pay” for your overdue fines by contributing one non-perishable food item for each dollar you owe in fines. For example, if you owe $3 in over dues, you must bring in three items. Food donations do not cover lost or damaged library materials. Bring in those long overdue DVD’s cd’s, books, etc. and clear up those fines. Borrowers must visit the Circulation Desk in person to take advantage of this opportunity. Do not donate out-dated food items. All food collected will be delivered to local food pantries. Food items most needed are tuna and other canned meat, dry milk, canned vegetables and fruit, rice, dry and canned beans, canned soups and stews, boxed pasta products, tomato items, juices and cereals.

Contact the Meriden Public Library at (203) 238-2344 or (203) 630-6349 if you have questions.
