SMU’s Central University Libraries (CUL) is giving students, faculty and staff members with overdue charges an opportunity to help the community while saving some cash.
During the 2014 Food for Fines program, CUL 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 members and students will receive a $2 credit toward fines for overdue materials from Fondren Library Center and the Hamon Arts Library.
To collect your credits, just bring food donations to either of these libraries through Friday, Dec. 19, 2014. All SMU community members are welcome to participate – even if you have no library fines to cancel.
Waiver credits do not apply to lost book replacement charges or processing fees. Credit only applies to overdue book fines currently assessed; no future credit can be applied. Overdue fines cannot be waived if they have already been sent to the Bursar’s Office for collection.
