Food For Fines Drive

Do something good for others while getting rid of your fines! From February 21 - March 7, PGCL is sponsoring a Food for Fines Drive to help support the local community.  You may bring items to the library to eliminate your library overdue fines. The maximum amount of fines that will be removed from each card is $50.00. Food will be accepted for overdue fines only, NOT for lost or damaged items. Actual cost of food will not be considered in cancelling fines.

The library will reduce overdue fines by $1.00 for each non-perishable food item or personal hygiene item brought to the circulation desk and contributed to the Utah Food Bank.
