Donate Food to Pay Off Your Fines at the Novi Library

The Novi Public Library is offering patrons the opportunity to pay off their fines with canned food donations.

If you have a library fine that is weighing on your mind, why not pay it off while participating in a great cause at the same time? Food for Fines is an opportunity for Novi Public Library patrons to donate canned or dried goods and receive up to $10 in overdue fines removed from their library cards. 

You can drop off your items at Food for Fines in the library's east meeting room at the following times:

  • Thursday, Feb. 14 from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.
  • Friday, Feb. 15 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
  • Saturday, Feb. 16 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Each item you bring in takes $1 off of your fines. Billed items are not included. In order for fines to be removed, library cards are required from each individual.

In partnership with Walmart, this event supports the Novi Food Emergency Bank and Hospitality House.
