Library collecting items for pantry

The Dublin branch of the Columbus Metropolitan Library will collect food for the Dublin Food Pantry Nov. 11-25.

The public can donate nonperishable food items at a bin that will be placed in the library lobby from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Thursday, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday and 1 to 5 p.m. Sunday.

"Dublin branch library users are unfailingly and amazingly generous about community initiatives; when the Dublin Food Pantry asked for support to meet holiday needs, we thought our users would be eager to assist families during a season when a family meal will most promote togetherness, joy and lasting good memories," Library Manager Michael Blackwell said in a news release.
