Thanks to you, fewer people will be hungryOur Food for Fines drive is over and thanks to all of you caring J-Hawks, we were able to present the Linn County Food Bank with 302 items, of which 211 were donated by people who did not have fines. Thanks especially to those of you who paid it forward and to Mrs. Chase for helping keep track of the items. It's truly great to be a J-Hawk!!

Food for FinesPlease J-Hawks, bring in your cans for our food drive. We want to collect 500 bags, boxes and cans for the Linn County Food Bank. If we do, there will be no more library fines the rest of the year! Let's do this.
