25 Oct Food for Fines: Nov 1 – Nov 22
Help stock Plainfield’s Little Free Pantries this Holiday season! Food for Fines is an initiative to help cardholders pay off their fines while also giving back to the community.
Here’s how it works:
From Friday, November 1 to Friday, November 22, you can pay off your overdue fines by donating non-perishable food items, personal hygiene products, paper towels, and cleaning products to the library. After November 22, the library distributes the donated items to a number of local organizations that serve the Plainfield community.
The value calculation for your donations is simple: we apply $1 toward your fines for every individually packaged product you bring in! All of the donations the library collects will be distributed to local organizations serving the Guilford Township community.
We will not accept items that are:
- In Glass Containers
Please note that Food for Fines donations will only apply for overdue fines that have accrued at the Plainfield-Guilford Township Public Library. Fines from other libraries, or for lost and damaged items, cannot be forgiven through this program.
