Food 4 Fines

February 1

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every day that begins at 12:00 am, repeating until February 28, 2022

Food-4-Fines with cans of food going into a pink piggy bank

Turn overdue books into food Feb 1-28, 2022


Donate canned or boxed foods to the Coffey County Library to pay off your library fines Tuesday, Feb 1 through Monday, Feb 28 during the CCL Food for Fines drive!

The library will deduct $1 from your overdue fees for every unopened, unexpired non perishable food item donated. (For example: Three canned items equals $3 in waived fees.)  Not only will you clear up your account, you will help your local community.

Don’t have any overdue fines?  Be a Fine Angel!  You may request your donations be applied to someone else’s overdue fines.   We will still accept items to help clear a juvenile patron’s account.

For more information, please contact your local branch.
