Food for Fines

Tuesday, December 10, 2013 at 7:30am to 11:59pm

Kraemer Family Library / El Pomar Center, Circulation Desk 1420 Austin Bluffs Parkway, Colorado Springs, CO 80918

Did you return a library book a little late?  Forgot what time your course reserve item was due?  Your chance to pay off those library fines and help a good cause is here!  Starting November 1st and running through December 10th, the Kraemer Family Library will be sponsoring a Food for Fines campaign benefiting the UCCS Holiday Service Project.

Here's how it works:

You'll receive a $1.00 credit towards your library fines for each non-perishable food item you bring in.  There is no limit on the number of items you may bring in; however, this offer cannot be used to pay for replacement fees for lost items.  In an effort to provide nutritionally balanced items to the food bank, Ramen noodles can be used to pay off only 20% of your total fine.
