Recycle Crayons at the Library
January 19, 2011
Bring old crayons your kids don't want or use anymore! The Library is collecting them for SCARCE (School and Community Assistance for Recycling and Composting Education). When you bring crayons to recycle, place them in the colorfully decorated bucket on the Hold Shelves in the library's lobby. They will soon have a new life.
Whole crayons are sorted into sets for underprivileged school children, and the broken pieces will be remelted into "super crayons." To make super crayons, SCARCE volunteers peel, sort, and melt the pieces in a crock pot and use candle molds to form large crayons to be used by children with special needs.
Thank you to all who bring us crayons.
