Food for Fines is back at the library!

Coromandel Peninsula | Wed November 01, 2017

11 OF 13. This is the caption text

We know library patrons love their local library - and for six weeks from November 6th, even clearing an overdue book fine will make you feel good. That's because patrons at the three district libraries will be able to exchange the value of any fines that they have accumulated for overdue books in return for a donation of food to local charities.

The Food for Fines promotion begins 6th November and will run until December 15th. People will have the option of donating a non-perishable food item instead of paying their overdue fees, and each donated item will reduce the fee by $4.00. Please ensure your donated items are not past their expiry dates.

Those choosing to take part can donate:

Tinned or bagged pet food. Tinned food such as spaghetti, baked beans, corn, tomatoes, soup, stew, tuna, sardines, salmon, corned beef. Cleaning products: tooth brushes, toothpaste, toilet paper, dishwashing liquid, washing powder, soap. Baby products: Nappies, milk formula, baby wipes. Pantry items:  cooking oil, marmite/vegemite, jam, marmalade, peanut butter, tea, milo, coffee, tomato sauce, mint sauce, vinegar, salt, cooking oil, glad wrap; Dry products: Flour, milk powder, sugar, soup mix, pasta, noodles, rice, cracker biscuits.
