Marion County Libraries will be celebrating National Library Week with an event called “Food for Fines”. All next week the Pella Public Library and Knoxville Library will be accepting non-perishable food items in exchange for overdue fines. Every food item will be worth $1 in fines. Up to $5 in fines can be paid with food throughout the week. All of the donated items will be given to the Pella Food Shelf for the Pella Library, and Helping Hands for the Knoxville Library.
