Food for Fines at the Library: A Win-Win

Published April 10, 2013 by Mark Bodnar

We're at that magical time of the semester when those students in courses with no exams will finish up their last assignments, tease their exam-bound colleagues, and take off for some R&R.

If you're one of those lucky few, consider returning your library books before you leave.  And if you happen to have accumulated some <ahem> fines over the term, maybe drop off some items for the SFU Food Bank to clear your account. :-)

The SFU Library's Food for Fines event is back! From April 1 to 22, you can stop by any SFU Library branch and donate non-perishable food and/or selected non-food items (toothpaste, diapers..) in exchange for a $2 waiver on your fines per item (to a maximum of $30).  See the library's page on the Spring 2013 Food for Fines Drive for more details.

Talk about a win-win situation!
