The third annual Art Around the Box fundraiser for the Morris Public Library was major success on March 10. Held at the White Memorial Conservation Center's Carriage House, the event featured the auctioning of lunchboxes and birdhouses tastefully decorated by local artists, as well as an auction of prizes that included a one-night stay at the Winvian resort and an overnight at the Litchfield Inn. More than $6,700 was raised to help fund innovative programs at the library. BZ photos
