Do you have a few dollars in overdue fees owing, but haven’t made it in to the Library yet? Well, there’s some great news for you! Prospect Library is waiving overdue fines in exchange for a donation of non-perishable food items during September and October.
The ‘Food for Fines’ initiative will see all contributions go to Lutheran Community Care, for use in their Christmas hampers given to local families in need.
By partnering with the community and Lutheran Community Care, the Prospect Library is turning a potentially negative situation of paying overdue fines into a positive experience. But don’t worry, if you don’t have overdue fees, you can still contribute to the collection.
Donations of food can be brought to the Prospect Library at 1 Thomas Street, Nailsworth during opening hours from Tuesday 6th September to Sunday 30th October.
If you would like to donate, please make sure that food is either tinned or in sealed packages, with an expiry date up to March 2017.
Suggestions for donation include:
• Pasta/pasta sauce
• Long life custard
• Canned vegetables
• Tinned tuna
• Long life milk
• Canned fruit
• Biscuits and crackers
• Christmas pudding/cakes
