Food and Toys for FinesReduce Your Library Fines

Monday, November 18, through Friday, December 13, library customers can reduce or eliminate library fines, while making the season bright for fellow County residents. All library locations will accept toys and non-perishable food items in exchange for reduced library fines.  OCPL will also gladly accept donations for anyone, regardless of whether they have library fine.
