VENTURA, Calif. – Ventura County Library, in partnership with FOOD Share Ventura County, is offering customers the ability to return overdue items along with canned food donations to have overdue fines reduced or eliminated. Customers with existing overdue charges can also pay down fines with food donations.
This is a great time to return that long overdue book or reduce late charges owed! One can of food = one dollar of fines waived. Returned items must be undamaged and property of Ventura County Library to qualify.
Canned food will be donated to FOOD Share, which will help provide food to needy members in the community. The Food for Fines program will be available at all twelve library locations from February 10 through 16.
Please note the Library is unable to accept perishables, glass, plastic, or boxed containers. For additional information on Food for Fines, the public can contact the E.P. Foster Library, at (805) 648-2716.
