The Kearney Public Library will hold a “Food for Fines” drive from Monday, September 27 through Sunday, October 17. Patrons may bring non-perishable food items to the library and in exchange, the library will waive late fines from their accounts. The food will be donated to the Mid-Nebraska Food Bank.
One donated food item will waive $1 of library fines. Patrons may donate multiple items. Fees related to lost, damaged, or interlibrary loan materials are not eligible to be waived. Expired food items will not be accepted.
Food items must be brought in to the main desk during open hours. Library hours are 9:00 a.m. – 9:00 p.m. Monday – Thursday; 9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. Friday and Saturday and 1:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m. Sunday. Call the library at (308) 233-3282 for more information.
