Brisbane Libraries - Get your library fines waived by donation of canned food during December (BRISBANE only)

3 December 2012

Library fines keeping you away from the library? Well! That would be me!! I've had months of library fines accumulated, it's stopped me from visiting any libraries here in Brisbane and borrowing books! Whoops!

Fear no more, just for the month of December, get into the spirit of Christmas with Council's Library Amnesty. All 33 libraries in Brisbane are getting into the spirit of Christmas by waiving all your overdue fees during December.

Customers who present their overdue books at a library during December will have their overdue fines, processing and holds fees waived in exchange for a donation of canned food. If you have already returned your books, but have incurred overdue fees, you can also have these fees waived in exchange for a can of food.

All food will then be donated to Foodbank Queensland, an organisation that distributes food to charities and community organisations who assist those in need.

Donations of canned food may include pet food. Perishable food items cannot be accepted.

Please note: Lost library items are not covered by the amnesty.

    It would be great if other libraries Australia wide would take up this initiative (_;)

What do you think?
