Harper Library Forgiving Fines Through May 26th! 

Starting Monday, April 25 through Thursday, May 26, 2011, the CPCC Libraries will be offering a “1-for-1 deal” as part of “fine free forgiveness days”. During this period, fines accrued from overdue items will be forgiven at all campus libraries.

How does this deal work?

  1. Bring in a canned good or other non-perishable food item for any library fines, new or old.   For each can of food, one fine will be waived.
  2. All materials must be returned in good condition. This deal excludes replacement fees for lost and damaged materials.

Food contributions from students, faculty and staff without current fines or overdue materials are also welcomed.  All food items collected will be donated to the local Loaves & Fishes charitable organization.  Their food priority needs list is available here.
