Fayetteville Public Library is partnering with Cooperative Emergency Outreach to provide extra food during the holiday season through Food for Fees Week. Patrons may exchange canned goods and other food items for library overdue fees during the week. Each non-perishable food item donated will go toward a $1 fee waiver. Please note that Food for Fees will not cover replacement fees for lost or damaged materials or fees for losses that are in billed status. Unopened, unexpired, non-perishable, non-glass donations will be accepted.

Items needed include:

  • peanut butter
  • canned tuna fish or chicken
  • beans
  • canned soup or fruit
  • cereal

Please bring your donation to the Circulation Desk through November 19.

Food for Fees benefits Cooperative Emergency Outreach, an organization that provides emergency assistance to residents in parts of Washington County. Assistance includes food, vouchers for clothing and prescriptions, and assistance with rent and utilities. To learn more about CEO, visit their website.
