Take advantage of library ‘Food for Fines’ food bank support

Bruce County Public Library is running its annual Food for Fines program at all 17 branches in Bruce County.

The program that began on November 29th and runs through to December 12th, gives the opportunity to clear some of overdue fines and help support local food banks at the same time!

For every non-perishable and unexpired food item donated, $2.00 will be cleared from your library fines (up to a maximum of $10.00).

No fines?  Donations are still welcome.

Bruce County Public Library started this successful program in 2015 and it has continued to be one of its most valued programs. This year, they hope to surpass their record by clearing $300 in fines and getting more items to local food banks.

Director Brooke McLean feels hopeful about this year’s outcome. “COVID-19 continues to affect our communities and our local food banks are helping more people in need. With the support of our library members, this year’s Food for Fines campaign will be our most impactful yet.”

To learn more about how you can participate in Food for Fines, contact your local Bruce County Public Library branch, either by phone or e-mail, or visit library.brucecounty.on.ca for a complete list of branches.
