Fines for Food – Clear your fines for 1/2 the cost, with all proceeds to the Food Bank! @ Bowen Island Public Library
Dec 15 2018 – Jan 15 2019 all-day

Fines for Food

December 15 – January 15

This year we have flipped our usual “Food for Fines” to become “Fines for Food.” Rather than bringing in donated food items, come in and clear your fines at half their amount: for every dollar donated to the food bank we will clear two dollars worth of fines. All the money donated will go directly to the Food Bank to enable them to purchase fresh food. For example, if you owe 20.00 in fines, pay only 10.00 into the Food Bank donation jar, and we will clear all your fines! (Fines for Food only applies to overdue fines, and does not apply to fees for damaged or missing library items.)
