Trade Food for Fines during Deschutes Public Library’s Food Drive

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 during open hours starting August 25 through September 2 and get $1 off for each item, up to a total of $5 a day. No overdue fines? You are still welcome to drop off an item to contribute to community members in need.

You can drop off food during open hours starting Saturday, August 25, through Sunday, September 2, at any Deschutes Public Library:

Downtown Bend Library
601 NW Wall Street, Bend
