BEAVERTON, Ore. – Get that library fine off your chest and do a good deed at the same time! Beaverton City Library’s annual Food for Fines program runs through National Library Week, Saturday, April 6 to Sunday, April 14.
Donate non-perishable food items to either Beaverton City Library location (Main at 12375 SW 5th St and Murray Scholls at 11200 SW Murray Scholls Place) during this time and you’ll be forgiven $2 in fines for every item you bring in. You can eliminate up to $20 in fines.
Additionally, if you bring in long overdue, billed items, those charges will also be removed. During this annual amnesty week, library patrons have donated an average of two tons of food each year to benefit the Oregon Food Bank.
Preferred donation items include, but are not limited to: boxed meals, canned fruits and vegetables, soup, cereal, peanut butter, jelly, rice, pasta and pasta sauce, beans, tuna, condiments, and toiletries such as shampoo, conditioner, hand soap, toilet paper and toothpaste.
