The Mohawk College Library is holding a Food for Fines event starting the week of November 26th in support of the MSA Food Bank. Items will be accepted at the customer service desk at all libraries until Sunday, December 2nd. Each non-perishable item is worth $5 in fines and up to $20 in fines will be forgiven. Please note that this forgiveness does not apply to fines for lost or damaged items and that items may be refused at the discretion of staff.
