The four Lawrenceville children whose brainchild it was to sell keys and hot chocolate raised $778 for their Fisk Street branch of the Carnegie Library Saturday.
People who bought the keys didn't take them home but left them to be strung together as a decoration.
Molly Dimond, whose two boys Oliver and Eliott Stephany were among our four young civic leaders, said the keys were symbolic of what the children believe is the right of all people -- to "unlock" the value of a library.
Walkabout is uplifted, to say the least, that we have citizens who, though they have to stretch to reach a doorknob, can draw a bead on what society is supposed to be about.
