Little Free Pantry

Johnson County Public Library’s mission is to connect our community members to resources. At the Franklin Branch, we offer a Little Free Pantry filled with food and other items available to anyone in need.

A JCPL employee built the pantry, and no Library funds are used to stock the pantry. Donations from individuals, families and local organizations keep the pantry filled. We ask that people take what they need and donate what they will.
ACCeptable Donations

How You Can Help

If you would like to donate supplies, then drop them off inside the Franklin Branch at the welcome desk during regular library hours.

How Your Organization Can Help

Local organizations are invited to stock the pantry throughout the year. Choose a week to adopt the pantry and collect donations to fill it.
