Library Program Guide

A rundown of all the regularly scheduled programs happening at your local libraries

Food for Fines

Have an overdue book, CD, or DVD from the library? Now’s your chance clear your fines. Jackson County Library Services will forgive fines and fees on all overdue items that are returned during the month of June, without limit. If you’ve lost library materials, you can get a fresh start with the Library’s Food for Fines campaign, also happening throughout June. Food for Fines allows anyone with an outstanding balance for overdue books to have $5.00 in charges forgiven for every can or package of non-perishable food donated, also without limit.

The Library’s message to the community is that “We want you back!” The program will allow residents who have stopped using the library to again take advantage of Library collections.

Food for Fines is a collaboration between Jackson County Library Services, Jackson County Library Foundation, and the Neighborhood Food Project (NFP), a group widely-known throughout the county for its colorful green bags used to collect and share food.

The Library’s 15 branches will serve as collection sites for the campaign. Patrons can find out the amount of their outstanding fines by calling 541-774-8689 or viewing their account online at jcls.org. Customers who don't have fines or fees can be part of the program by making donations of non-perishable food items to any Jackson County Library in June.
