RPL now recovers our used Keurig Cups!

Through the generous hospitality of the Friends of the Rye Public Library we  happily offer coffee to our members and guests for a very reasonable suggested donation.   The ubiquitous Keurig brewer has greatly simplified that process and helped us to reduce coffee waste on a daily basis.  Until now, though, the  K-Cup packs used by our patrons in the Library were a non-sustainable link in the cycle.   The Grounds to Grow On program allows us to send  packs used in the Library for processing that creates compost from coffee grounds and energy from the containers.  This program will not change your experience at all, but will allow for a more sustainable process behind the scenes.  Enjoy a cup of coffee and thank the Friends of the Rye Public Library for their support!Grounds
