When you want to keep a good thing going, you may keep your library items a little longer than expected—which could result in late fees. Reduce or eliminate those overdue fines by bringing in food to your library! Bring your non-perishable food items to your library anytime from August 5 through August 12 and get $1.00 per donated item off of your overdue fines and processing fees, up to a total of $5.00 a day. No overdue fines? We still welcome you to drop off an item to contribute to community members in need.


You can drop off food anytime starting Saturday, August 5, through Saturday, August 12, at any Deschutes Public Library:


Downtown Bend Library

 601 NW Wall Street, Bend


East Bend Library

62080 Dean Swift Road, Bend


La Pine Library

16425 1st Street, La Pine


Redmond Library

827 SW Deschutes Avenue, Redmond


Sisters Library

110 North Cedar Street, Sisters


Sunriver Library

56844 Venture Lane

All food will go to NeighborImpact’s Food Bank, which collects and distributes food to more than 40 different sites throughout Central Oregon.
