Food for Fines

The Westland Public Library is happy to announce we will be hosting a Food for Fines program from November 22nd until December 23rd. Anybody who has fines at the library will be able to bring in a non-perishable, unexpired good to pay for $2 worth of fines (up to $20 in fines total). This will not cover lost or damaged items, but can cover fines on those items.

Our goal is to collect 1000 goods over the course of the month. Non-fine related donations will be accepted, too. We will keep you posted here and in the library on our progress. All donated food will be collected by Gleaners Community Food Bank and distributed to various food agencies in the Westland area. To see a list of eligible food and non-food items, please stop by any of our service desks or call (734) 326-6123.

Please stop by the Circulation Desk starting Monday, November 22nd to get your past fines reduced- and feel good doing something kind for your community!
