Clean out your cupboards and lower your library fines April 6 - 20, 2019!

Library customers can pay overdue fees and help restock the pantries of Valley food banks during Phoenix Public Library’s annual Food for Fines, April 6 - 20, 2019.

During Food for Fines, $1 will be deducted from a customer’s library account fees for each non-perishable food item donated at any of the city’s library locations. A maximum of $75 can be paid with donated food. Perishable, expired, beyond sell by date and homemade food items will not be accepted. Donated food will be distributed to Desert Mission Food Bank and St. Mary's Food Bank Alliance. Each year, we collect around 20,000 pounds of food.
