Sunday, December 1st to Sunday, December 15th

The Library’s annual Food for Fines drive returns this holiday season! Help families in Clarington while reducing your Library fines.

From December 1st to 15th, bring in non-perishable food items to receive $1 per item off any fines you have on your Library account (to a maximum of $5). It’s a great way to give back and celebrate the holidays!

All donated items will be distributed to food banks serving the Clarington community.
