From now until 2pm on November 23, the library is accepting donations of non-expired canned food and dry goods. All donations will go to Mid-Sioux Opportunities for their Emergency Food Pantries located in each outreach office. The Emergency Food Pantries support individuals and families who are out of food & money.
Each non-expired item donated at the library is worth $2 credit toward existing overdue fines. If your fine balance is $0.00, you're welcome to select a book from our used-book sale or a bonus item from the gift display table (SCPL water bottle, book bag, bookends, etc.).
Examples of needed items: boxed meals & mixes, peanut butter, canned fruit & vegetables, pasta, rice, soup, canned meat, boxed cereal, baby food, flour, sugar, dry milk, etc. Items can be placed in the blue bin located in the main lobby area. Items must be unopened and not past their expiration date.
