Friendly Food for Fines

Bring in nonperishable food and other donations the week of April 10th – 16th and take advantage of fine forgiveness!

Help us celebrate National Library Week and support the Wright State Friendship Food Pantry.

3 Paths to Fine Forgiveness:

  1. Bring any nonperishable, nonexpired food item (or diapers or toiletries – see list below) to the Circulation Desk in Dunbar Library between April 10th and April 16th and you’ll receive a $5 reduction in overdue fines to University Libraries up to $50 total;
  2. Diapers may be worth more towards your fines based on package size – check with a library staff member;
  3. Giftcards to Kroger, Meijer or Walmart will count double towards your fines up to $50 (i.e. $10 giftcard = $20 off your fines); note: card value will be verified by a library staff member.

Keep in mind:

  • Fine forgiveness will not exceed $50;
  • Fine forgiveness will not include lost, “billed”, or replacement items;
  • Please return or renew late items to take full advantage of fine forgiveness.

Most needed items include:
