Beaverton City Library’s annual Food for Fines program runs through National Library Week, Saturday, April 6, to Sunday, April 14. Donate non-perishable food items to either Beaverton City Library location during this time and you’ll be forgiven $2 in fines for every item you bring in. You can eliminate up to $20 in fines. Additionally, if you bring in long overdue, billed items, those charges will also be removed. During this annual amnesty week, library patrons have donated an average of two tons of food each year to benefit the Oregon Food Bank. Preferred donation items include, but are not limited to: boxed meals, canned fruits and vegetables, soup, cereal, peanut butter, jelly, rice, pasta and pasta sauce, beans, tuna, condiments, and toiletries such as shampoo, conditioner, hand soap, toilet paper and toothpaste.
