The library just completed its first ever Reuse A Shoe program and the response was worth a “Wow” from our Nike contact. Thank you to all of those who scoured their closets, basements and garages for old, unused gym shoes. Your donations generated a total of 16 large boxes filled with approximately 425 shoes. Your generosity will go towards new playgrounds, sports surfaces and new Nike products. Go Green, Save Green!
