Check out your Library for two innovative programs this Holiday Season

Bruce County Public Library is delighted to announce its participation in two innovative programs this holiday season that are open to public support: Food for Fines and the Tree of Warmth.

Tree of Warmth is offered in all 17 Branches on Monday, November 13, and will run until Friday, December 1. The public can participate in the program by donating new, unwrapped, warm articles of clothing for children ages 0-18. The clothes will then be donated to the Dorrell Young Fund, ensuring that kids in need stay warm during winter.

Food for Fines is a popular, long-running Library initiative and will be returning on Monday, November 27 and running until Friday, December 8. This year, they are excited to add the Bookmobile to the list of branches collecting donations. This is an excellent opportunity for Library patrons to make a positive impact by donating non-perishable food items. For every food item donated, $5 will be applied to overdue fines, up to a maximum of $25. This helps clear overdue fines and contributes to local food banks and assisting families in need.

These programs reflect the library’s commitment to the communities they serve, spreading joy and helping those in need. Join them in making a difference and sharing in the spirit of giving this holiday season.
