Food for fines at Rossland Public Library

The Rossland Public Library will be accepting non-perishable food donations for the Food Bank in lieu of cash for overdue fees.

From Saturday, Dec. 21 to Sunday, Jan 5, the Rossland Public Library will be accepting non-perishable food donations for the Rossland Food Bank in lieu of cash for overdue fees.

Bring back your overdue books, movies, and magazines along with some cans, boxes or jars and the library will forgive any fines you have owing.  This is a great opportunity to wipe the slate clean and celebrate the holidays with the Rossland Public Library.

As of Wednesday, Jan 1 the fines on overdue items will change to bring them in line with other libraries in the Kootenay region. Fines for CDs and DVDs are going down from $1 to 25¢ per day. Fines for books are going up from 10¢ to 25¢ per day.
