Program Description


The library is partnering with SCARCE ( to collect used crayons and bread tags for recycling. During the month of April, please drop off your used crayons and bread tags in the Adult or Youth Department.

SCARCE’s Super Crayon project diverts broken, unusable crayons from going to the landfill. They recycle crayon pieces into “Super Crayons” that can be used by children with special needs.

SCARCE also works with Danielle Cares for Chairs to collect and recycle plastic bread tags for funds to purchase wheelchairs for those in need. It takes about 260,000 bread tags to purchase a basic wheelchair—so every bread tag counts!
