Swap Food for Fines during National Library Week

In celebration of National Library Week April 8-13th the NDSU Libraries will waive ONE DOLLAR in fines* for each food item donated.  There’s no limit to how many items you donate.  Return those overdue materials, clear your fines, and help your community at the same time!

No Fines?  We’ll accept food items from anyone who would like to participate.  All donations will be delivered to the Great Plains Food Bank at the end of the collection week.

All you need to do is bring your food items to the circulation desk at the Main Library, Health Sciences Library in Sudro Hall Room 135, Barry Hall Library Room 22, or Architecture/Landscape Architecture Library Room 310 in Klai Hall and our staff will do the rest.

The Great Plains Food Bank recommends the following:

  • Food items must be non-perishable, sealed, and unexpired food
  • No baby food or pet food (GPFB can’t accept these from a food drive)
  • Most needed items: soup, stew, chili, peanut butter, canned meat products, cereal, pancake mix, tomato-based products, boxed meals, canned fruit and vegetables, pasta, rice, and instant potatoes.  Also, tissue boxes, toilet paper, and bar soap.

For more information call 231-8888

*Non-returned billed items or lost items are not eligible in this promotion
