Food for Fines for Helping Hand Spring Edition
March 23 - May 3
Help us support our neighbors in need by participating in Food for Fines Spring Edition. Bring non-perishable items to the library and we will forgive $1.00 in fines on Romulus Library materials for each item that is donated. Food for Fines cannot be used for lost items or collection fees and we cannot accept items that are past the expiration date. Donations will be accepted for those without fines as well!
