Quick Reminder that we have Sidewalk Chalk so you can come create some sidewalk art in front of the library then get some ice cream from the Clearwater Chamber of Commerce and watch the Horses Across America come by. This will be filmed and may be on RFD TV, so you could be on TV!

Food for Fines in May

Food for Fines returns to the library for the month of May 2019

If you’ve got overdue library materials at home, now’s the time to round them up. During Food for Fines month you can make your fines disappear while you help stock the shelves of local food bank.

Here’s how it works:

  • Bring non-expired, non-perishable food items to donate at the circulation desk of the Clearwater Public Library.
  • For each item you donate, $1 of your library fines for overdue materials will be forgiven.
  • Fines can only be forgiven on overdue materials that have been returned, so make sure you’ve looked under the bed for stray books and movies first! You can also log in to your online library account or ask staff at the library if you’re not sure which materials you currently have checked out or whether you have a fine.
  • Sorry, but Food for Fines credit cannot be applied toward fees for items that have been lost or damaged or hotspot fees.
  • All donations collected during Food for Fines will be donated to our local food bank.
