Food For Fines Has Returned for the Holidays

Get into the giving spirit with Himmelfarb Library! We will be having a Food for Fines collection drive from now until December 21. Here are the guidelines:


  • One dollar in current library fines will be removed from your library record for every canned good or non-perishable food item that is donated. Healthy selections are encouraged.
  • All items will be donated to Bread for the City, a local non-profit organization serving low-income residents of D.C.
  • A maximum of $20.00 in fines will be waived per person.
  • Only fines can be removed, not item replacement fees.
  • We cannot accept opened packages or items with expired dates.
  • You may donate food items even if you don’t have fines. We will not accept monetary donations. For monetary donations, please contact Bread for the City directly.
