Food for Fines

October 24 to November 5

Burleson Public Library is ready to waive your fines again! Customers who owe library fines can get as much as $30 forgiven. The catch is that instead of digging into their pockets, customers can bring in donations that the library will turn over to Harvest House.
Customers can bring new, unopened personal hygiene products and nonperishable food items to the library to receive credit of $1 per item and $2 per High Need item. A maximum of $30 can be waived. High Need items, as designated by Harvest House are packages of toilet paper, toothpaste and toothbrushes, bar soap, shampoo and conditioner, razors, feminine hygiene products, deodorant, and laundry soap.
Fees for lost or damaged items and fines for items belonging to other libraries will not be waived. Only existing overdue fines on Burleson items are eligible for the program; no credits will be placed on accounts for future fines. Food for Fines has the potential to reduce some of these charges and bring customers’ accounts back into good standing.
