Did you know...

......that from Monday 16 December you will be able to return overdue library items and pay any existing library fines by donating suitable food? All food donated will help support the disadvantaged in our community. Mornington Peninsula Libraries is partnering with the Southern Peninsula Food For All Inc; Mornington Community and Information Support Centre; and Western Port Community Support to distribute donated items throughout the Mornington Peninsula.

How does it work?

Return your overdue library item/s and clear existing overdue fines by simply dropping a food donation to a friendly library team member at any Mornington Peninsula Library by Tuesday 14 April, 2020.

Food for Fines will only apply to overdue fines. Not valid for lost/damaged items or other library charges.

What can I donate?

You can donate non-perishable items, including canned food, jars and packet food (no confectionery please). Items must not be opened or damaged and the expiry date must be later than 1 June, 2020.

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

When can I donate?

Food for Fines will run from Monday 16 December, 2019 until Tuesday 14 April, 2020.
