Members can can earn $1 toward fines for each new (unused, unopened, not expired) can or package of peanut butter, canned chicken or tuna, canned vegetables, fruit, or soups, cereal, or pasta. Members can just bring the food to the circulation desk (along with their library card) to get the credit. All items collected will go to Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee. More information is available on their website.
Additionally, throughout the month, the library is hosting events such as readings of The Very Hungry Caterpillar, nutrition education classes, cooking classes, and showings of the films A Place at the Table and The Garden. If you haven’t seen either of these movies, it’s a great idea to take advantage of these free screenings. Check the library’s calendar page for details and a full list of events.
