Food for Fines and Pay It Forward at the library

Support Local Journalism


The Yolo County Library is offering residents and library card holders two opportunities to feed and support their communities this holiday season with ‘Food for Fines’ and ‘Pay It Forward.’   The first opportunity is through the Library’s annual “Food for Fines” program that allows library card holders to clear $1 from their Yolo County Library overdue fines for each nonperishable food item donated at the circulation desk of any Yolo County Library location.   The program runs Tuesday, Nov. 13 through Monday, Dec. 31, and there is no limit to the number of donations or reduction in fines cardholders can receive. Library card holders are welcome to donate even if they do not have any overdue fines. The second opportunity is through the Library’s ‘Pay It Forward’ program, which allows customers to help library card holders pay off their overdue fines. Customers are welcome to donate money and write a message on a star-shaped note that will be posted on a board behind the circulation desk. Except where noted, all programs are sponsored by the Winters Friends of the Library, are free to attend and no registration is required. For more information, contact library staff at 530-795-4955, visit the Yolo County Library at: See the calendar for Winters Community Library-specific events.
