11-17 November - Pay your library fines to Children In Need11-17 November - Pay your library fines to Children In Need

11/11/2017

From Saturday 11th November up until Children in Need day on Friday the 17th of November, we'll be offering you the chance to donate your library fines to Children in Need instead of paying them to us! Donations must be cash only (we regret we can't accept charity donations by credit card or via the online payment system) and made in person at any of our Library Enquiry Desks. Why not take the chance to clear any fines on your record and raise money for a great cause at the same time? http://www.aber.ac.uk/en/is/library/fines/
