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 2013 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 community members will receive a $2 credit toward fines for overdue materials from Bridwell Library, Fondren Library Center, Hamon Arts Library and the Institute for the Study of Earth and Man Reading Room.
Bring food donations to any of these libraries through Friday, Dec. 20, 2013.
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.
