Food for Fines

December 1, 2021 - December 31, 2021

If you’re going to the grocery store soon, picking up a few extra items can help you pay for your late fees! The Holbrook Public Library will have a “Food for Fines” exchange to benefit the Holbrook Food Pantry. For the entire month of December, library patrons may bring in one non-perishable food item in exchange for up to $1 in regular overdue fines on library materials.

The program provides library patrons with a way to reduce or eliminate overdue fines and provides much-needed donations to our local food pantry. Donated goods apply only to late fees – not lost items, damaged materials, or interlibrary loan fees.

What applies? Check out below:

  • Canned items such as: soups, fruits, vegetables, beans, pasta dishes, canned milk, and meats are welcome.
  • Dried goods include: rice, oatmeal, dried beans, dried pasta, crackers, cookies, and dried milk may be donated.

Please check the expiration dates on any of your donations.

For additional information, please contact the Holbrook Public Library at 781-767-3644 or email us at hpl@holbrook.ocln.org.
Donations are welcome, even if you don’t have any late fines, until the end of December.
