This November, library patrons brought cans, bags, and boxes of non-perishable food items to their hometown Pioneer Library. which were donated to various organizations, such as Blanchard Lion Cubs, Salvation Army of Norman, Moore Public Schools Food Pantry, and many others. For every item donated, Pioneer Library System removed $1 off of the existing library fines on patrons' accounts.
This year, the entire Pioneer Library System gathered approximately 2.4 tons of un-opened food items from charitable patrons.
That weighs as much as a White Rhinoceros from Africa! If you would like more information about this animal, please feel free to explore our Encyclopedia Britannica database here.
Thank you for all of your donations!

Aiden is off this month, but Ashley brings along guest co-host Aaron Gray from the Southwest Oklahoma City Public Library to talk about a library campaign that makes you love being a geek. Plus, see the two new branches up and running in Norman––one of them so futuristic, the Jetsons would be jealous!
