Food for Fines

Saturday, February 1, 2020

February is Amnesty Month at the Independence Public Library. Receive $1 off fines with one donated food item.

The month of February is designated as "Food for Fines" month at the Independence Public Library. Clear your unpaid library fines and get a fresh start during amnesty month by donating food to those in need. Each donated food item will erase $1.00 of fines from your card. If you prefer to pay your fine with cash, that money will also go to the food pantry. Both food and fine money received throughout Amnesty Month will be given to the Independence Area Food Pantry. Library patrons will have a clear account and a fresh new start at the library!

We will also be pleased to accept donations to the food pantry by those who don't have fines. Just bring your donations to the library as a convenient drop-off location during the month of February.

For more information, please contact the library at 319-334-2470.
