Libraries support community food banks in time for Christmas

Our October ‘Food for fines’ promotion was a resounding success - with over four thousand food items donated to local foodbanks! With your help we have donated boxes and boxes of food to our local foodbanks in time for Christmas, when many families particularly need this service. We also love that so many of you were happy to have your fines waived for a good cause, and excited to start using your library again.

About half of items donated were given to the Lower Hutt Foodbank. Petone, Taita, Stokes Valley and Wainuiomata Libraries also donated to local foodbanks in their communities.
