Food for Fines to benefit Project Salina

 May 2, 2016 – Salina Public Library invites patrons to pay down their late fees and contribute to Project Salina with its Food for Fines program.

During the month of May, library users can bring cans of tuna to the library, 301 W. Elm, to donate to Project Salina. Each 5 oz. can that is donated will equal up to $1 of late-fine forgiveness. Lost materials or other charges cannot be paid off with food donations. Those without late fees are welcome to donate as well.

All donated tuna will benefit Project Salina, a community-wide effort to collect food donations in May. Donations are distributed through Salina Emergency Aid-Food Bank, Ashby House, Domestic Violence Association of Central Kansas, The Salvation Army and Salina Rescue Mission.

"My favorite story of the library is the first time I came here. We had just moved to town and I was feeling a bit out-of-sorts. As soon as I walked in, I felt like I was home! I guess libraries do that for you, no matter where you are!"
