FERRIS PUBLIC LIBRARY: More than books (November 25, 2021)
The Ferris Public Library’s annual food drive, Food 4 Fines, will be held until Dec. 21, 2021. This means it’s time to search the closets, look under the bed, and anywhere else you might have any overdue books and/or movies from the library. Then bring the item back to us and donate one non-perishable food item for every dollar owed in past due fines.
Feel free to call the library at (972) 544-3696 to ask if your account has any overdue fees associated with it. To participate in this program, all items must be returned.
Food 4 Fines is a win-win situation. Patrons can clear their accounts, and the library gets the overdue materials back. In addition, we are accepting food donations from anyone in the community who wants to do a good deed.
We can only accept non-perishable food items. The most needed are canned meat, pasta, peanut butter, canned vegetables, and beans. All food collected will be given to our local food pantry.
