food for fines
Kings County residents can pay off overdue library book fines by helping out local food banks.
During the month of February, the Annapolis Valley Regional Library is partnering with Valley food banks and Feed Nova Scotia for Food for Fines. From Feb. 1-28, for every item of non-perishable foods delivered to a library branch, up to $3 in overdue book fines will be forgiven.
There is no limit on the number of fines that can be pardoned. However, the program is only applicable to overdue book fines; it cannot be used with lost book fees, damaged materials or other miscellaneous fees, such as printing or photocopying.
All food donations received at Annapolis Valley Regional Library service points (branches and/or bookmobile) will go to a Feed Nova Scotia member agency food bank serving that library’s community.
