Holiday Food for Fines Drive - 2011


It's time once again to reduce or pay off those end of year library late fees by providing much needed food to the Second Harvest Food Bank.

From now through Friday, December 16th you can participate in this holiday season's 2011 Lane Library Annual "Food for Fines" program.

To receive credit for your late fees and fines, bring in canned and non-perishable foods such as peanut butter, tuna, cereal, or powdered milk, etc., to Lane Library and we will reduce your late fees by $2.00 per item. See a basic list of most-needed food items and a child-friendly foods list for ideas on what to bring.

You can also donate through Second Harvest Food Bank's Virtual Food Drive:
  • Go online at
  • Click "Virtual Food Drive", then "Associated with a Food Drive"
  • Organization type = Schools
  • Organization name = Lane Medical Library
  • Make your donation for the amount of your fines due or MORE!
    *Note that every dollar donated provides the equivalent of two nutritious meals!
  • Bring your receipt to the library or FAX it to 650-725-7471, Attn: Shannon Meaney
  • We will credit your account and send you a receipt that your late fees have been paid.

Or, simply write out a check to Second Harvest Food Bank and bring it to Lane to receive credit.

We know that some of you wait all year to pay your fines just to participate in our annual Food for Fines program, so please call 650-723-6831 or come by the library today to find out the exact amount you owe in fees.

Thank you for your support of the 2011 Lane Library Food for Fines program.

Happy Holidays to you and your family from Lane Library Staff.
