From November 16 to December 11, 2015, the CPCC Libraries will be conducting a food drive called Food for Fines. During this period, fines accrued from overdue items will be forgiven at all campus libraries in exchange for the donation of non-perishable food items.
How does Food for Fines work?
- For every one non-perishable food item, one dollar in fines will be waived from your account. So, 4 cans of soup will equal $4.00 in fines waived.
- A maximum of $20 in fines will be waived from any account.
- Only fines are waived – replacement fees for lost books are not eligible for Food for Fines.
- No credits for future fines will be issued. Food for Fines is for existing fines only.
Which food items are acceptable?
Only non-perishable food items will be accepted. Non-perishable means that the items will not be in danger of immediately spoiling. Items must not be expired.
The following food items are most desired for Food for Fines:
- Canned meats and fish, including tuna, chicken and beef stew
- Canned fruits and vegetables
- Peanut butter
All donations go to the Second Harvest Food Bank of Metrolina. Donations will be accepted even if you don’t have fines!

The library is blocking your ability to register, received transcripts, or graduate if you owe library fines of $50 or more. Currently, the library is only able to accept payments in cash or check. If you have any questions about your current status with the library, please call us at 704.330.6885.
The Library is now placing registration blocks on students who owe $10 or more on their library account. If you are concerned about any fines that may be on your account, call 704.330.6885 or stop by any of the campus libraries.
