Food for Fines
FVRL offers deal for tardy bookworms
Submitted by Jason Brown, Envision CU
ower your library fines and help feed those in need! From November 12 to December 10, you can "pay" your fines with food. It's simple–bring non-perishable food items to any Fraser Valley Regional Library location and have your fines reduced.
One food item equals $2 in fines, and up to $30 of fines owed per library account can be waived during the Food for Fines campaign. All items collected will be donated to the local food bank.
"FVRL strives to continually build meaningful partnership
with various local community agencies," says Rob O'Brennan, FVRL's CEO.
"This particular collaboration is a great way for our customers to reduce or
eliminate their overdue fines, and provide much needed donations to our
local food banks."
