Have an overdue library book? “Food for Fines” returns next week

Don’t let your overdue fines scare you from going to the library!

The annual Food for Fines campaign, which began in 2014, has generated more than 250 large boxes of food to local food banks.

The campaign is a bookend to BC Library Month, celebrated in October. It is a way of supporting the community and removing a financial barrier to use the library.

The Greater Victoria Public Library will waive overdue fines up to $5 per cardholder when you bring in a donation of non-perishable food items.

All food collected is donated to local social service agencies.


Greater Victoria Public Library Food for Fines
