Reduce Fines, Help Those in Need during Hudson Library’s Food for Fines Drive

To reduce library overdue fine amounts and help those in need this holiday season, The Hudson Library & Historical Society will hold a Food for Fines drive December 1-23, 2017. For each non-expired, non-perishable food item donated, patrons will receive $1.00 off their library overdue fines. All donated items will be sent to the Hudson Community Service Association (HCSA) Food Pantry for distribution to local families.

This year, based on items that the HCSA has the greatest need for this holiday season, the library will only accept: canned pasta, canned tomato products (including spaghetti sauce), baked beans, peanut butter, jelly, tuna or chicken helper, rice, canned tuna or chicken, canned beef stew and/or chicken and dumplings.

Two stipulations apply during the Food for Fines drive:

  • Amounts currently in collections cannot be included.
  • Lost and damaged items must be paid for. They are not included in this event.
