A Mile of Pennies in Morrisville

The Friends of Morristown Centennial Library are working on A Mile of Pennies, a fundraiser first tried years ago by the Friends.

Patrons may have noticed red cans with Morristown Library Labels on them in local businesses. Look for the cans, and drop in your loose change so we can make a mile of pennies. The donations will go toward the library’s programs and services, especially the youth and children’s programs and activities.

(quoted from Morrisville’s Front Porch Forum)

Windham County Reads used the same idea as an old-fashioned bookmobile fundraiser. They targeted children in the elementary schools in the county. There’s something very charming about penny collections.
