Food for Fines: Wipe out Arizona library fines by bring in canned goods

Arizona libraries are partnering with St. Mary's Food Bank Alliance to help eliminate book fines while collecting canned food for those in need.

All Phoenix Public Library locations will provide a 50-cent credit that can be used to settle overdue book fines for every canned good brought in to one of their locations.

Canned goods can be brought in between April 13 - 27, 2013.

The program collected over 32,000 pounds of food last year.

Visit the Phoenix Public Library website for more information about the "Food for Fines" program.
