Gathering Food for the Pantry

The Library is helping the Collinsville High School Student Council

in collecting canned goods or hygiene products for the local food pantry

now through October 23rd.

To make it even better we are adding a an
additional Food for Fines time
to help with their collection.
For every 1 nonperishable food item or hygiene product the Library will forgive $1.00 of fines on your library card.

So remember to bring your contribution of food or products in today at the Collinsville Library or the Fairmont City Library and we will send them on to the Student Council.
