Benefiting the Emergency Food Pantry Coalition and Vanderburgh Humane Society, give back this holiday season!Library: Central Library Map
Evansville Vanderburgh Public Library (EVPL) is excited to announce the Annual Food for Fines program will take place from now until Saturday, December 16.
Benefiting both humans and animals alike, EVPL has teamed up with the Emergency Food Pantry Coalition and Vanderburgh Humane Society this year to help alleviate library fines and give back to our community.
Donation items can be dropped off at the front desk of any of our eight EVPL locations. Items should be unopened, not past the expiration date, and still have labels attached to them.
The amount of fines waived is dependent on the donation size and type:
For every canned or boxed food item (human or animal), EVPL will waive $1.00 per item.
For every animal treat donated, EVPL will waive $1.00 per bag/box/etc.
For every bag of animal food, EVPL will waive $5 - $10 depending on size.
While all brands of dog and cat food will be accepted, we ask the public to keep Pro Pack brand food in mind.
