Kiosks to allow Flagler County residents to exchange books for canned goods

FLAGLER COUNTY, Fla. — You’ll soon be able to exchange canned goods for books or books for canned goods in Flagler County.

The Flagler County Public Library is opening “Food for Thought” kiosks on Feb. 20 where non-perishable canned goods can be exchanged for books, or vice-versa, at both the Haw Creek Community Center and the Hidden Trails Community Center.


“Having a ‘Little Free Library-Pantry’ in each of these two locations will help us get books out to the residents in western Flagler County,” said Chief of Special Projects and Library Director Holly Albanese.

The kiosks will be open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and be restocked monthly. Library officials said books for all ages will be available.
