Still time to clear library fines with food donations

Have you been dreading going to the Fort St. John Library, knowing you have late fees on your account?

Worry not, for November is Food for Fines month. Any overdue fines, lost book fines or damaged item fines will be waive in exchange for a donation of non-perishable food.

Each individual food item is considered equal to $5, so if you have $15 in overdue fines, bring in three items and your account will be cleared.

The donations brought in will go to the Fort St. John Women’s Resource Society.

Even if you don’t have fines, the library would still welcome any donations brought in during the month.
