As part of the Council’s Library Amnesty 2018, Hamilton Library is offering to waive outstanding library fees for the entire month of December 2018.

The latest initiative from Brisbane libraries aims to waive overdue fines, processing, and holds fees in exchange for a donation of canned food.


The library amnesty allows customers to get into the spirit of Christmas by donating canned goods to those in need whilst having all of their overdue fees waived.

Customers with overdue books or those who already returned their books but have incurred fees can benefit from the program. All you have to do is donate a can of food to have all the fees waived.

All of the canned food collected from the library amnesty will go to Foodbank Queensland. This not-for-profit organisation distributes food to charities and community organisations who assist those in need.
