The Sitka Public Library will be hosting a “Food for Fines” program throughout the month of November to benefit community food shelves. Here’s how it works: for every non-perishable food item you donate, we will forgive $2 in late fines. The food will go to the Salvation Army and Sitka Tribe of Alaska food shelves, where it will be distributed to community members in need of food assistance. Food must be in store-sealed cans, boxes, or plastic containers within its expiration date. Perishable food or opened containers cannot be accepted.
This program only applies to late fines, not replacement charges or fees on damaged items. Only fines on Sitka Public Library items will be forgiven. No rain checks will be given – all donations must be made during the month of November.
To participate, please bring your library card and your donations to the Circulation Desk. Library staff will approve the donations and remove the total amount from your account. We encourage you to participate even if you don’t have late fees! Make a donation, clear your account, and help all members of our community have food security this season.
