Your mother always taught you not to play with your food, but she never said anything about paying with it.
The Leddy Library’s Food for Fines program, now in its third year, allows students to pay their library fines for overdue materials with non-perishable, unexpired food items. Through December 9, students are able to receive a $2 credit towards their fines for each item brought in.
The event is run by the library’s access services staff, which has set a goal of collecting 900 food items.
Dino Spagnuolo’s first ever attempt at growing a moustache turned out to be a winner.
A clerk in the Leddy Library’s media centre, Spagnuolo tied for top honours with Dave Smith, an analyst in the university’s planning and budgets department, in a campus moustache growing contest.
“It’s an honour to have been chosen as a co-winner from among all these great-looking guys,” Spagnuolo said yesterday after a lunch held at the University Club to pick the winners.
A group from the Leddy Library is hoping to change the face of men’s health, and its members are putting their faces on the line.
Franco Magliaro, John Minos, Brian Owens, Joe Silvestri and Dino Spagnuolo have joined the Movember movement, growing moustaches through the month of November in an effort to raise awareness and funds in support of men’s health issues, especially prostate cancer.
“We were just talking one day and decided to combine our efforts as a team,” says Magliaro, captain of Mo Leddy. “We hope our colleagues will pitch in and make a donation.”
