CRANSTON, R.I. (AP) — The Cranston Public Library Association is allowing the public to buy segments of walkways that will display an image and short message — but only when it rains.
The Providence Journal reports (http://bit.ly/1KXKy09 ) the library system's newest fundraiser encourages the public to pay $25 for a 46-by-46-inch square. The donor can then choose one of three images and add a personal message up to 10 characters that will appear only during rainfall.
The images feature an open book, a set of mechanical gears and the Cranston Public Library logo.
Library staff members and volunteers will use stencils and a water-repellent solution to create the image and message. Library officials say the images are expected to last six months to a year.
Orders must be placed by Sept. 19.
