Food exchange for a good cause

This holiday season, let’s set our sights on raising public awareness by helping those who are less fortunate in our community. With this in mind, the City of Sainte-Anne-de-Bellevue encourages citizens to reimburse their late fees on library book loans in exchange of non-perishable food. The donated food will be used to prepare Christmas baskets for underprivileged families. Users can bring non-perishable food to the library circulation desk equivalent to their late fee charges, and in doing so, the late fees will be cleared from their record. All citizens are invited to generously participate in this food fundraising even if they do not wish to exchange food against late fees.

Clientele: Everyone

Location: Library

Dates: November 21, 2022 to January 3, 2023

 

Word Tree | New Year's Environmental Resolutions

The new year is all about resolutions. For 2023, have you thought about taking action to reduce your ecological footprint? At the library we have set up a word tree so that everyone can write down the good deeds they want to do for the Earth this year. For example, for some it will be buying local, for others it will be changing their consumption habits, adopting a greener lifestyle or reducing their waste... And what will be your resolution?

Come and write your resolution on our bookmarks (100% recycled) to hang in our tree and share them with the population.

Clientele : All

Location : Library

Dates : January 1 to 31, 2023
