Central Otago Libraries Fines Amnesty


Oops! Have you got some library fines? Don't worry - it happens to the best of us!

Central Otago Libraries want to spread some seasonal cheer and remove your fines at the same time.

Just bring a can of food to the counter at Alexandra, Clyde, Cromwell, Maniototo, Millers Flat, Omakau or Roxburgh Libraries and we will waive $5 from your fines*! If you owe more than $5, no worries! You are not limited to just one can - we'll waive  $5 for each can of food you bring in.  

The items you bring in will be donated to your local food bank, to help those within your community.


Our Cash for Cans amnesty runs from 1 December until 24 December, 2019.


*Does not include the cost of lost items and processing fees
