LITS fine exchange

Donate non-perishable food items in exchange for fine waivers! Waivers will be eligible towards overdue and recall fines from this semester that were accrued before October 16. Each donated item will be worth $2.00 in waived fines, with a limit of $20.00 that can be waived.

Bring items to the Circulation Desk at the Main Library. Items will be donated to Mount Holyoke's Catholic Community (MHCC)'s Harvest for the Hungry.

Items must be new and unopened. Examples of items to donate are canned goods, dried foods, instant meals, rices, pastas, and soups. Items will be accepted through the end of the day on Saturday, November 2.
