Don’t sweat it.
The Chula Vista public library system is offering to wipe away overdue fines for patrons who want to donate food to a good cause and save money.
The Food for Fines program will waive $1 per non-perishable food item brought into area libraries from Dec. 1-24.
The nearest branch library is located in the Otay Ranch Town Center, 2015 Birch Road.
The food for fines structures is as follows: Non-perishable items such as canned vegetables, canned meats and dried pasta count for up to $1 worth of fines for each item.
A maximum of $10 in library fines per library card will be waived in exchange for donated food. Items may be used to clear fines only, not for lost or damaged books or collection agency fees.
