Food for Fines: HTPL Partners with Gleaners

The Harrison Township Public Library in partnership with Gleaners Community Food Bank is hosting a Food for Fines Canned Food Drive.

From Monday, April 1st through, Tuesday April 30th, members can exchange canned goods for the late fees on one item.

Just bring in non-perishable, unopened canned goods and the library will waive the late fees for any item on your account. The Food for Fines Drive is a great time to return overdue materials. You’ll help both your community and your library!

While this event waives late fees for those who owe, participation is open to everyone. If you’d like to donate non-perishable items to Gleaner’s Community Food Bank, we welcome your donation. All donations accepted during normal business hours. Please do not leave food donations in the outdoor drop box.
