Food for Fines

Did you return a book a little late? Forgot what time your course reserve item was due? Your chance to pay off those library fines and help a good cause is here! Starting November 1 and running through December 10 the Kraemer Family Library will be sponsoring a Food for Fines campaign benefiting the UCCS Holiday Service Project.

Here's how it works...

You'll receive a $1.00 credit towards your library fines for each non-perishable food item you bring in.

Please note that:

  • Every donated item counts as a $1 credit towards fines, regardless of the cost of the item. (A $2.50 jar of peanut butter only counts for $1.)
  • Items packaged together count as one; e.g. an 8 pack of microwave popcorn is worth $1 credit, not $8.
  • There is no limit on the number of items you may bring in, however this offer cannot be used to pay for replacement fees for lost items.
  • In an effort to provide nutritionally balanced items for the Holiday Service Project, Ramen noodles can be used to pay off only 20% of a fine total.
  • We will not accept expired items or cans/boxes with severe damage or missing labels

Please bring your donations to the main Circulation Desk in order to receive a credit for your fines. If you have any questions about Food for Fines please contact the Circulation Department at 719-255-3296.
