Every December, Marion Carnegie Library waives fines for library visitors and supports a local charitable organization at the same time. This year, the library is supporting Gum Drops. Gum Drops is a local organization that helps local at-risk children by providing easy to prepare food.
Anyone with outstanding library overdue fines may bring a donation of new/unopened Ramen noodle cups, Easy Mac cups, granola/cereal bars, tuna or chicken salad kits, single serving cereal boxes, canned soup or canned spaghetti/ravioli to have the overdue fines forgiven. Donations are also welcome from all community members and library visitors. Please drop off items during regular library hours, Monday through Thursday from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Friday and Saturday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Fines will be forgiven in the following manner:
One donated item = $1 in fines
Two donated items = $2 in fines
Three donated items = $3 in fines
Four donated items = $4 in fines
Five donated items = $5 in fines
Six donated items = $10 in fines
Seven donated items = $15 in fines
Donations are not valid for lost or damaged items or printing costs. Only new/unopened items from the above list will be accepted and only during the month of December. The library staff reserves the right to refuse any item.
