In honor of Shreve Memorial Library’s centennial celebration, Shreve Memorial Library is extending its annual Food for Thought Amnesty Days food drive for 100 days, encouraging patrons to “Keep It 100” and donate to the Food Bank of Northwest Louisiana. The annual event encourages library patrons to bring in non-perishable food items to have their fines, fees and charges waived. The “Keep It 100” Amnesty Days food drive will take place Monday, September 11 through Tuesday, December 19 at all Shreve Memorial Library branches.
Shreve Memorial Library patrons with outstanding overdue fines received prior to March 2020 and those with fees and charges for lost or damaged items can drop off non-perishable food items to Shreve Memorial Library branches throughout Caddo Parish. For each item donated, one (1) fine, fee or charge up to $5 will be waived. Multiple items can be donated to cover fines, fees and charges of more than $5. Each donated item will be worth $5 toward the total amount due. Please note that amnesty does not apply to charges for lost or damaged Nintendo Switch consoles or hotspot devices.
All items donated will be delivered to the Food Bank of Northwest Louisiana in December. Patrons are asked to donate any of the following non-perishable food items, identified as the most needed items by the Food Bank. No glass containers please.
Donations will be accepted at all Shreve Memorial Library branches during normal business hours.
The “Keep It 100” Amnesty Days food drive is part of Shreve Memorial Library’s overall centennial celebration, as the library celebrates 100 years of serving the citizens of Caddo Parish. Throughout the year, Shreve Memorial Library branches have and continue to celebrate the milestone with special programming and activities.
