 PAY OFF LIBRARY FINES WITH CANNED FOOD

November 26-December 31

The holidays are coming, and Escondido Public Library is getting into the giving spirit with its annual Food for Fines program! Food for Fines offers patrons the opportunity to clear up to $20.00 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. Keep an eye out for our colorful tracker in the lobby, which will show the amount of food donated throughout the program. Last year, we donated 1,590  pounds of food- let’s make it to 2,000 this year!

Holiday hours. The library will be closed November 11, 22, 23 and at 5 p.m. on Wednesday, November 21, the day before Thanksgiving.
