West Seneca Central School students are raising money to furnish the new West Seneca Library in the new community center.
Each school has a water jug with the slogan, "It takes CENTS to help the library grow!'
The school that collects the most money by spring will win a grand prize: a private tour of the new library before it opens to the public.
The library will feature comfortable reading areas, computers, laptops, study/tutoring rooms, modern and accessible meeting rooms, a teen area, children's area, outdoor space, cafe, gym and office space. Construction is to be completed by May.
The money raised by students will be used for non-construction purposes, such as furniture and materials for the Maker Space, an area available for community use for various hands-on projects.
