For one in six people in Alameda County, hunger is a reality. This summer, the San Leandro Library will join other libraries across California in collecting 10,000 pounds of food for those in need.
To kickoff our summer food drive, the Library will offer Food For Fines from Monday, June 3 through Saturday, June 8. During that time, library card holders can bring a non-perishable food item and your overdue book to the Main Library or our three branches, Manor, Mulford-Marina or South Branch Library, and we'll take $1 off your overdue fines, for up to $5 total ($1 per can). Food will be donated to the Davis Street Family Resource Center.
