For your library fines to be waived, you must include the 13-digit barcode from your ONECard/library card in the donation form (click the red button below) By submitting that form, you give the Campus Food Bank permission to share your name, barcode, email address, and donation amount with the UA Libraries. If you cannot locate your 13-digit barcode, please contact the U of A Libraries at 780-492-4174 before submitting this form.
For every dollar donated to the Campus Food Bank, you will be waived the same amount in overdue library fines, to a maximum of $100. Only current fines on UofA books and books from participating NEOS Libraries will be waived. Fines on MacEwan and Olds College books are not eligible. Charges for lost or damaged items are not eligible.
Fines will be waived in 7-10 business days after you make your donation.
If you would rather donate non-perishable food items, those can be dropped off at any Main Campus or Campus Saint-Jean Library.
Food for Fines runs from March 5th to April 30th
While all donations are valued, monetary donations are highly encouraged since they allow us flexibility to purchase what is most needed at a certain time. Monetary donations can be dropped off during office hours or mailed. If you are donating by cheque, please write it to “Campus Food Bank.”
