Food exchange for a good cause

Clientele : For everyone
Location : Library
Dates : November 20th to December 20th

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.


Photo contest "Funny Elves"

Participate in this humorous photo contest on the theme of Christmas elves. The photos will be exhibited at the library. Come to the library and hang it yourself on our mural, and get a chance to win a Christmas basket! Please don’t forget to identify your photo.
