Trade Food for Fines during Deschutes Public Library’s Build a Better World Food Drive


Saturday, August 5–Saturday, August 12

When you want to keep a good thing going, you may keep your library items a little longer than expected—which could result in late fees. Reduce or eliminate those overdue fines by bringing in food to your library! Bring your non-perishable food items to your library anytime from August 5 through August 12 and get $1.00 off your overdue fines and processing fees, up to a total of $5.00 a day. No overdue fines? We still welcome you to drop off an item to contribute to community members in need.

You can drop off food anytime starting Saturday, August 5, through Saturday, August 12, at any Deschutes Public Library:
