Food for Fines


Marion Public Library

Repeating Event Dates

Throughout the month of November

Marion Public Library will be accepting non-perishable food items in lieu of fines for materials from November 1st-30th, 2019. All food items will go to the HACAP Food Reservoir. 

Library patrons may bring one non-perishable item for each $1 owed for overdue library material. We will also accept food contributions from people who want to “pay it forward” by helping pay someone else’s fines as well as happily accept food contributions from those who have no library fines but want to help prevent hunger in the metro area.

We will not accept dented cans, glass containers or foods with past expiration dates. Food items may not be contributed to replace lost or damaged library items.
