A 4-H book swap previously at USD 408 Sports and Aquatic Center will move into Marion County Resource Center and Food Bank and offer books in exchange for food donations in addition to swapping books.
Happy Hustlers 4-H will monitor the program every Thursday. It will be available on Mondays “on an honor system basis,” adviser Kathy Martin said.
“I don’t know if you’d call it an honor system,” she said. “We just want people to have books.”
Club members will move the collection of over 1,000 children’s and adult books Monday with the first hours in the food bank July 30.
The food bank at 1220 E. Main St. offered to house the program.
It is open 4:30 to 7:30 p.m. Thursdays and 9 a.m. to noon Mondays.
