Library extends Food for Fines program
The Marshall County Library System has extended its Food for Fines program through the end of July.
Anyone who brings a can of food gets $1 off a fine. The food goes to support the pantry at the New Hope Village shelter.
“This is a good way to pay a fine and help those less fortunate,” said Amanda McDonald, director, Marshall County Library System.
The summer reading program is off to a good start. Children do not have to attend any set number of times. The reading program offers story time, crafts, and refreshments.
Days remaining are Holly Springs – Tuesdays, June 25 and July 9, 16, and 25; Byhalia Wednesdays, June 26 and July 10, 17, and 24; Potts Camp, Thursdays, June 20, 27, and July 11, 18 and 25. Reading time begins at 2 p.m.
The program is free and open to children of all ages. Parents, come and help out and enjoy the fun.
