Food for Fines

Bring in new, unopened items from the list below and we will waive $1 in overdue fines* per item donated—up to $30 per library card! For example, if you have $4.20 in fines, bring in five items and we will zero out your fees.

All donations benefit the Niles Township Food Pantry. Even if you don’t have current library fines, we will gladly accept your food donations!
