First graders at Greencastle-Antrim Elementary School raised $637.35 for the Lilian S. Besore Memorial Library, one dime at a time. The fundraiser, completed on the 100th day of school each year, provided money for the purchase of children's books. It was promoted as "Dimes for Books". Besore director Laura Bailie met with the youngsters Feb. 6 to thank them and share titles of books she bought in the past.
