Thank you for your interest in the Yorba Linda Public
Library’s Food For Fines program, which runs November 1 – December 14. You can
donate online from the link below, or bring canned goods into the library. The
virtual Food Drive program, run through the Community Action Partnership of
Orange County Food Bank, allows you to donate food without the work of bringing
in canned goods to the library. If you are donating to clear fines from your
library card, there are a few steps you’ll need to follow:
