Title: Collecting Overdue Library Books While Simultaneously Benefiting the Community: The Food for Fines Program
Author: Harris, Catherine; Lyons, Kathy; Kathe, Obrig
Abstract: This poster presentation is a detailed description of the background, process, promotion, results and conclusions of an academic library community service project. The "Food for Fines" program, implemented at Himmelfarb Health Sciences Library was designed to encourage the collection of fines for overdue items. One non-perishable food item was accepted for every $1.00 in overdue fines, to a maximum of $20.00. These food items were donated to a local food bank in the Washington, DC area.
