"Keene Public Library opens new 'sharing box'"
Through a “sharing box” that has been set up outside the Keene Public Library, community members can now access and donate food, toiletries and other items.
The sharing box, which debuted at the library last month, is open seven days a week, 24 hours a day, according to a news release from the library. It is near the Winter Street entrance, and no photo identification is required to access it.
The idea for the sharing box stems from Library Director Marti Fiske’s experience donating to another box in town, in front of Good Fortune Jewelry & Pawn on Main Street.
Fiske had been donating to the box personally, and then in February of last year began donating through a food drive at the library. Donations were collected throughout the entire month, focusing on food and other items that could be easily used by people experiencing homelessness or those without full kitchen facilities. READ MORE
