Food for Fines

From February 9-17, we will be running a Food for Fines food drive at all 4 branches. For every non-perishable food item donated, $2 will be deducted from fines owing to a maximum of $30 per library card.


Please bring donations into any branch during our open hours. Items will be collected for Feed the Need Durham in Oshawa.
