SMU Central University Libraries' Food for Fines logoSMU’s Central University Libraries (CUL) has kicked off its 2011 Food for Fines program and will accept food donations for the North Texas Food Bank in return for waiving library fines.

For every donation of a can or package of nonperishable food, SMU faculty, staff and students will receive a $2 credit toward fines for overdue materials from Fondren Library CenterHamon Arts Library and the Institute for the Study of Earth and Man Reading Room.

Bring food donations to any of these CUL libraries through Friday, Dec. 16.

Waiver credits do not apply to lost book replacement charges or processing fees. The credit may only be used against overdue book fines assessed from Nov. 1, 2011, to the present. No credit will be awarded for fines assessed prior to November 2011, and no future credit can be applied.
