Food for FinesIn the spirit of holiday sharing, Central University Libraries are once again collecting food donations for the North Texas Food Bank in return for waiving library fines. For every donation of a can or package of non-perishable food, SMU faculty, students, and staff will receive a $2.00 credit off their library fines. This applies to materials from Fondren Library Center and the Hamon Arts Library. Bring your food donations to either of these CUL libraries beginning Monday, December 1 until Thursday, December 18.

  • This waiver does not apply to lost book replacement charges or processing fees.
  • This waiver only applies to overdue book fines currently assessed (no future credit applied).
  • Overdue fines may not be waived if they have already been sent to the Cashier’s Office for collection.
  • Join CUL staff in celebrating the season, have your fines reduced by exchanging food for fines – or just join in the fun and contribute to the effort.

Happy Holidays from Central University Libraries!
