Food for Fines—Penn Libraries Food Drive and Fine Amnesty Program

November 15, 2011, Volume 58, No. 12


Help feed our community while paying off your library fines. Through the month of November, the Penn Libraries are sponsoring a food drive and fine amnesty program to benefit Philabundance.

For each food item donated, $1 will be credited towards your library account, up to a maximum of $20 (please note that credit cannot be applied to lost book replacement fees). Food donations will be collected at the Van Pelt Library Circulation Desk.

 Items should be non-perishable and packaged in boxes, cans or plastic bottles. We cannot accept items in glass containers. Please consider donating these high priority items: canned/shelf stable tuna, beef stew, chili, pasta, beef ravioli, fruit cocktail, green beans or corn;  creamy peanut butter or jelly in plastic containers only, macaroni & cheese, breakfast cereal or hot cereal.

No fines? We will still gladly accept food donations.
