Have late fees?

Help Tempe's less fortunate and your wallet by donating canned food items or bottled water to Tempe Public Library and eliminate your fines. 

Tempe Public Library cares about its community. To help our neighbors as well as our patrons, we offer two events each year to provide food or water to Tempe residents in need: Food for Fines and Water for Fines. You bring in canned food or water to eliminate your fines.
