Library FOOD FOR FINES Campaign

From Monday December 3rd to Friday the 7th the Library is running a Food for Fines campaign to collect items for the Greater Vancouver Food Bank (GVFB). For each non-perishable, unexpired food item donated, the library will waive $2 from your fine, up to a maximum of $30. No fines? No problem! You can still make a donation.

Visit the check-out desk if you have questions about fines and to drop off donations.
