Donate food and reduce your library fines! The libraries of SU and SUNY-ESF will once again be participating in “Food for Fines” from April 23-May 4 by collecting food for the needy and offering patrons the opportunity to reduce their overdue fines.
For each healthy, nonperishable food item donated by an individual during those dates, his/her regular, overdue circulation fines will be reduced by $1–Interlibrary loan fines and lost book fees are not included.
Participating libraries include Bird, Carnegie Library, College Law Library, Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Library, King + King Architecture Library, and ESF’s Moon Library.
Donations may be brought to the circulation desks of affiliated libraries. Students, faculty, and staff without current fines may also contribute.
All food items will be donated to the Hendricks Chapel Food Pantry, which stocks food and personal care items available at no cost to all students with a valid Syracuse University or SUNY-ESF ID.
