If you owe the library money, you may want to pick up some food.
To lower your library fines, that is.
Vaughan Public Libraries has launched its Food for Fines program.
You can donate non-perishable items to lower your library fines, Dec. 1 to 14.
Of course, you don’t have to owe money to participate.
Donations of non-perishable food items can be dropped off at any Vaughan library branch. Each item will lower your fines by $1.
Donations will be accepted at the service desk and will be given to the Vaughan Food Bank and Humanity First. Food items will not be accepted as replacement costs for lost or damaged items or for any fee payments (i.e. room rentals).
ITEMS NOT ACCEPTED:
