Events for Adults @ BCL Main

  1. Food for Fines

    April 13, 2017, 10:00 AM - 9:00 PM @ Beaverton City Library

    Get that library fine off your chest and do a good deed at the same time! Donate non-perishable food items to either Beaverton City Library location during National Library Week and you'll be forgiven $2 in fines for every item you bring in. You can eliminate up to $20 in fines. Additionally, if you bring in long overdue, billed items, those charges will also be removed. During this annual amnesty week, library patrons have donated an average of two tons of food each year to benefit the Oregon Food Bank. Preferred donation items include, but are not limited to: boxed meals, canned fruits and vegetables, soup, cereal, peanut butter, jelly, rice, pasta and pasta sauce, beans, tuna, condiments, and toiletries such as shampoo, conditioner, hand soap, toilet paper and toothpaste.
