SWOSU Libraries Sponsoring Food for Fines! Program

SWOSU Libraries Sponsoring Food for Fines! Program

Southwestern Oklahoma State University Libraries is having a Food for Fines! Program starting on April 7 in celebration of National Library Week.

For every canned good donated, a SWOSU student will receive $0.50 off any library fines accrued.  If any students would like to donate, but does not currently have fines, they will receive Fine Forgiveness bucks to be used at a future date.

All food items collected will be donated to the Weatherford Food Pantry.

This year’s theme for National Library Week on April 7-13 is Libraries = Strong Communities.  It is with this theme in mind that Sayre Campus Librarian and Outreach Team Leader April Miller decided on the Food for Fines! Program.

The SWOSU Libraries are the heart of the University community, and we want to give back to the community at large as well,” Miller said.

The Food for Fines! Program begins and will continue until the end of finals on May 3. For more information, contract either library on the Weatherford and Sayre campus.
