MLN Read to Feed

The Metro Library Network is proud to partner with HACAP for our Read to Feed initiative. For each food shelf donation you bring in during November, you can get $1 off your fines; just present your donation to our amazing checkout desk staff. Receipts for tax purposes are available upon request. Just want to donate but don’t have fines? That’s okay, too! Thanks to the Marion Hy-Vee for letting us borrow a grocery cart where you can put your donated items. Unlabeled, expired, and glass items are not accepted. Items most needed include canned chicken or tuna, peanut butter, boxed meals, and canned fruits or vegetables; here's a more extensive donation list. We are excited to help out our neighbors and friends! Donations collected at the Marion Public Library will benefit the Churches of Marion Food Pantry.
