This festive season you can make a last ditch effort to improve your standing on Santa’s list.
Katy Gallagher has announced that people will be able to trade in non-perishable food for unpaid library fines.
For every item of non-perishable food donated $2 will be taken off your library fees.
“All food will be donated to OzHarvest Canberra which provides food to 55 charities across Canberra and Queanbeyan. This is a fantastic initiative that supports those in the community who are in need – especially during the festive season.
“The concept is quite simple – basically one tin or packet of non-perishable food equals $2 worth of fines. So if you donate three tins, then we will take $6 worth of fines off your account,” the Chief Minister said.
