Have overdue library fines? Join Food for Fines – until 15 December

Did you know that you can now pay for your Library and laptop fines by donating suitable food to help support the disadvantaged in our community? Swinburne Library and studentHQ will be donating the food items to Uniting’s Food for Families end-of-year campaign, helping to feed the homeless, unemployed families and children living in poverty.

How does it work?

Simply drop off your donations at Hawthorn, Croydon or Wantirna Library and studentHQ by Sunday 15 December. For each item donated $3 is deducted and up to a maximum of $30 can be claimed off your overdue fines (not valid for lost items).

What can I donate?

You can donate non-perishable items, including canned food, jars and packeted food (no confectionery please). Items must not be damaged and the expiry date must not be before June 2020.

Of course you are welcome to donate items without having fines!
