food for fines

Food for fines. The Troy Public Library will accept 1 non-perishable item per $2 in fines! So if you have $5.20 in fines, bring in 3 items to eliminate your fine. Items cannot be past their expiration date. Maximum amount that can be cleared is $25.

All food items will be donated to Hope 7 and the St. Augustine’s Food Pantry. This will reduce late fines for both branches of the Troy Public Library. Charges from other libraries or for lost, damaged, missing items will not be reduced. Please see a staff member if you have any questions. Don’t have any fines, we will gladly accept donations!
