Food For Fines!

Help out your fellow students and save some $$$…

From Tuesday, November 26th – Thursday, November 28th, the Library will take up to $5.00 off of your fines with a donation to the Student Food Bank.

Items in high demand include: powdered or canned milk; canned tuna, salmon or meat; canned fruits and vegetables; sugar, coffee, and tea; peanut butter; baby food and baby formula.  There is also a great need for toothpaste, toothbrushes, soap, shampoo, baby care items, toilet paper and feminine hygiene products.

Even if you don’t have any Library fines, please consider making a donation, your generosity will be appreciated!

Please call 403-440-6019 or drop by the Circulation / Reserve Desk for more information.
