Library Amnesty 2017

The Council Libraries are again in the Christmas spirit by offering to waive outstanding library fees during December.

Customers who present their overdue books at a library during December will have their overdue fines, processing and holds fees waived in exchange for a donation of canned food. If you have already returned your books, but have incurred overdue fees, you can also have these fees waived in exchange for a can of food.

This year, Council’s library amnesty will donate all food to Foodbank Queensland, an organisation that distributes food to charities and community organisations who assist those in need.

Perishable food items cannot be accepted.
Visit the Wynnum Library in Florence Street between 1-31 December 2017 with your overdue books and a donation of canned food.
Residents without outstanding library fees are also welcome to provide donations of canned food/goods at their local library to help spread Christmas cheer to those in need.
