“Food for Fines” at the Redwood City Public Library!…
Do you have outstanding library fines? Well, this is your chance to clear your account by simply helping others.
The Redwood City Public Library, in partnership with Second Harvest Food Bank, will accept donated food in place of overdue book fines over the month of December as part of  their “Food for Fines” program.

Anyone with outstanding library fines is invited to deliver nonperishable food items to any Redwood City library during regular business hours. The higher the amount of your unpaid fines, the more food you can donate.
