Libraries' 'Food for Fines' initiative makes a difference

Post by Wirral Council News » Wed Oct 23, 2019 1:49 pm

Wirral Libraries' 'Food for Fines' initiative  - which allowed borrowers to clear unpaid library fines by donating food and toiletries to Wirral Foodbank - saw a "substantial" number of donations during Libraries Week (7-13 October).

A total of £1,900 worth of library fines were also waived during the week.

Strategic Library Manager Peter Aspinall said:

"We'd like to thank everyone who took part and showed enthusiasm for Food for Fines. It was a great success, with a substantial amount of food and toiletries donated to help families in-need across Wirral. We hope this will have also encouraged people to come back into our libraries who may not have visited for some time.

"Thanks also go to volunteers at the Foodbank for their support with the scheme."
