Fine Amnesty Week

Losing sleep over library fines?  World hunger keeping you awake? You can kill two birds with one stone during the library’s Fine Amnesty Week, starting Nov 15, 2010. We are offering a “1-for-1 deal” as part of “fine forgiveness days”.  During this week, fines accrued from overdue items (e.g., books, DVDs, videos, CDs, etc.) will be forgiven when you:

  1. return overdue library materials to any CPCC library, along with a canned good or non-perishable food item.
  2. bring in a canned good or other non-perishable food item for each previously returned overdue item
  3. All materials must be returned in good condition. This deal excludes replacement fees for lost and damaged materials.

Library materials and food item donations will be received at all campus libraries during that week.  Food contributions from students, faculty and staff without current fines or overdue materials are also welcomed.

All food items collected will be donated to the local Loaves & Fishes charitable organization.
