Library to Host Canned Food Drive

(BATESVILLE, AR) – The Independence County Library is hosting a Canned Food Drive during the month of September to benefit Batesville Help and Hope. Library patrons with late fees will have 50 cents removed from their accounts for every canned food item they bring to the library during the month of September.

“This is a good way to get your late fees lowered or removed entirely, and help others who are in need,” Vanessa Adams, Library Director, stated. “Of course, all patrons are encouraged to donate canned items regardless of whether they have library fines. We will be happy to accept items from anyone who wishes to help.”

The Library, located at 267 E. Main St. in Batesville, is open Monday through Thursday 10 to 6, and Friday and Saturday 9 to 5. For more information, please contact Vanessa Adams at (870) 793-8814.
