University Libraries

Feed the Hungry with Food for Fines

By Chris Tangeman

During National Library Week April 7-13, University of Dayton library patrons can reduce their library fines by bringing in nonperishable food items for the St. Vincent de Paul pantry.

When the library is open during National Library Week, the staff will waive $1 of overdue fines on UD materials (excluding OhioLINK items) for each donation of a nonperishable, labeled food item that has not passed its use-by date. Please deliver your donated items to the services desk on the second floor of Roesch Library and help those in our community.

'how do I know if I owe fines?'

If your guilty conscience isn't reliable enough, you can check your library account online. Questions? Email the access services department or call 937-229-4234.

Celebrate Libraries

National Library Week, first celebrated in 1958, calls attention to the contributions of libraries and librarians to freedom, education and knowledge and promotes library use and support. The American Library Association (ALA) sponsors this nationwide observance every April.

It's unnecessary to shower library faculty and staff with flowers and gifts … but if you feel so inclined, chocolate-containing items from the vending machine (fourth floor) are always a nice treat.
