Food For Fines: April 7-13

Join us for Food For Fines during National Library Week, April 7-13

To celebrate National Library Week, the library is excited to announce our first Food For Fines program! Food For Fines is an initiative to help cardholders pay off their fines, while also giving back to the community.


From Sunday, April 7 to Saturday, April 13, you can pay off your overdue fines by donating non-perishable food items, personal hygiene products, paper towels and cleaning products to the library. When the week has ended, 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 towards 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:

  • Damaged
  • Expired
  • Opened
  • 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.

Full details on the Food for Fines program can be found here.

Email us at if you have any questions.
