Food For Fines

The Mechanicville Library is once again teaming up with the Mechanicville Area Community center for  Fine Amnesty this November!

  All proceeds will benefit the Mechanicville Emergency Food Pantry.  Throughout the month of November, we will accept a food item at the Library for each Mechanicville fine on your card.

For example, if you have three fines on your card, you need to bring in three food items to the Library to have your fines waived. 

 Please note that fines from other libraries, replacement costs, and collection agency fees cannot be waived!

Even if you have not accumulated fines, we will encourage our community to donate! 

Food items needed include Peanut Butter, Jelly, Tuna, Pasta, Tomato Sauce, Soup, Beans, Coffee, Canned Vegetables & Fruit, Cereal, and any other non-perishable items you are able to give. 

And remember, personal care items and food donations can be donated year round directly to the Mechanicville Area Community Center. We thank you in advance for your generosity!
