During the month of April, you can drop off non-perishable food items to benefit Gleaners Community Food Bank. From April 11 - 17, we will offer a Food for Fines program. For every non-perishable food item you donate during these dates, $1.00 will be forgiven from your fines, with a maximum of $5.00 forgiven per library card. The food drive is all month long, so even if you can't stop by during the fine forgiveness week, you can still stop off food items anytime during the month of April. This program is a collaborative effort organized by Gleaners Community Food Bank of Southeast Michigan and local libraries.
