Food for Fines

Between February 3 and February 9, we are running our first "Food for Fines" campaign. The campaign is designed to help patrons pay off their overdue fines and to support the Leduc & District Food Bank.

For each item of non-perishable food brought in, we’ll take up to $1 per item from your overdue fees.

Food donations only apply to overdue fees. They can’t be used for lost or damaged charges.      

Food donations can’t be used to create a credit on a library card. For example, if you have $10 in overdue fines, you cannot bring in 20 food items, have your $10 fine eliminated and a $10 credit placed on your card for future fines.     

Please bring food items to the Information Desk to have your fees waived.  


How long does Food for Fines run?
Sunday, February 3 to Saturday 9.

Why are we doing this?
To support the Leduc & District Food Bank.

What kinds of donations can people bring in?
Because they’re being collected over the space of a week, food donations should be non-perishable. Some toiletries and some staples are also accepted. See the Leduc & District Food Bank website for the items that the Food Bank is most in need of.

Thank you for your help in this campaign!
