Donate Food, Pay a Fine

No comments :
University of Alberta Libraries will be running a Food for Fines campaign at all library locations from Monday, February 1 - Sunday, February 14, 2016.  A partnership with the Campus Food Bank, all donated food items will be distributed to members of the University of Alberta community through the Food Bank on North Campus and the Reciprocity Shelf in the Forum at Augustana. 

How does it work?

1. Visit one of the following service desks

  • Augustana Campus Library
  • Bibliotheque Saint Jean
  • Cameron Science & Technology
  • H.T. Coutts Education & Physical Education
  • J.A. Weir Memorial Law
  • J.W. Scott Health Sciences
  • Humanities & Social Sciences
  • Winspear Business Reference Library
  • or, visit St. Joseph's College Library

2. Donate non-perishable food items.  Preferred items include rolled oats, rice, canned vegetables and canned beans.  However all non-perishable contributions are welcome.

3. For every item donated, you will be waived $5 in overdue fines, to a maximum of $100 [20 items]. Only current fines on UofA books and books from most NEOS libraries will be waived. Charges for lost or damaged books are not eligible.  No fines?  No problem. Donate a food item anyway.

Follow @uofalibraries or @campusfoodbank with #foodforfines for campaign updates.
