The holidays are coming, and Escondido Public Library is getting into the giving spirit with its annual Food for Fines program! From November 26 through December 31 Food for Fines offers patrons the opportunity to clear up to $20 in fines from Library accounts by donating non-perishable, nutritious, pre- packaged food. Each food item counts as $1.00 toward reducing fines.
The food is donated to Escondido’s Interfaith Community Services and distributed to local needy families. All donations must be given at the Customer Service Desk. Last year, 1,590 pounds of food were donated.
