Clear Your Fines and Help Local Food Banks

Bruce County Public Library wants to help you and local food banks too!  The Library will clear $2.00 in overdue fines from your library card for every non-perishable food donated, to a maximum of $10.00.  Items must be dropped off at any Bruce County Public Library location from December 1-8.  Library will also gladly accept food donations from those without fines.

Bruce County Public Library “Food for Fines” consistently clears close to $200 in overdue fines and each library branch delivers the donated items to their closest food bank.  This program supports the Library’s goal to ease barriers that may deter residents from using Library resources and services, while contributing to an important need in our communities.      

Non-perishable food items can be dropped off at any Bruce County Public Library branch during open hours.  Please check our website at or inquire at your local library branch for further details.
