Food For Fines

It’s a win-win situation for students and local food banks – clear your Library fines by donating some food.

From Monday 14 to Sunday 20 August Massey Library will be holding its annual fines amnesty, giving students the chance to clear their Library fines by donating food.

For every medium can or packet of non-perishable food, $5 of Library fines (excludes other Library charges) will be cleared.

The Library is also happy to accept food donations from staff and those without Library fines. All food collected will be passed on to local food banks.

Internal students and staff, just bring the food to the Service Point at your campus Library.

Distance students, here is what you can do:

If you have received a flier from us, or you can download Food for fines info, take it to your local food bank and ask them to stamp it when you donate (their date stamp needs to be on or before 20 August). Then just send it to us to be received by 25 August 2017.

Alternatively, feel free to post us a grocery voucher and we will pay off your fines accordingly ($5.00 voucher for $10.00 in fines). Remember to include your name and ID with the voucher, and send it to us to be received by 25 August 2017.

Send your receipt or voucher, separately from any books please, to:
