Food For Fines June 1 - 14 at the Des Plaines Library

Food for fines returns to the Des Plaines Public Library June 1 - 14, 2014. DPPL patrons can bring in non-perishable food and get money subtracted from their library fines. Each food item brought in will result in $1 of overdue fines being cleared. Lost or damaged item fines and fines from non-DPPL libraries are not eligible for this program.

Items must be packaged for individual sale and may not be expired. All items donated will go to the Self-Help Closet & Pantry of Des Plaines. Most needed items include mac & cheese, canned goods, peanut butter, pasta, rice, baby food and formula, diapers, cleaning supplies, toothpaste and drink mixes.
