To celebrate Ontario Public Library Week (17-23 October) and Canadian Library Month, Milton Public Library will be hosting its fourth annual fine forgiveness programme in partnership with the Milton Community Resource Centre in support of MCRC’s Infant Food Bank.

The Food for Fines campaign will run from 17th October to 7th November, 2021. This initiative invites patrons to bring in nonperishable food items or diapers to any of MPL’s three locations, to help local families in need, in exchange for the waiving of fines on overdue library materials.

Patrons are especially encouraged to donate high-demand items including:

• Enfamil formula

• Gluten free baby cereal

• Baby food pouches

• Large size diapers 4, 5, 6

MCRC’s Infant Food Bank is the only of its kind in Halton, and it supports more than 100 babies per month. Each month, more families are relying on their services. MPL is proud to continue to support this initiative this year, with the support of the community.
