Boo! Find the press this month at
📚 Lawrence Public Library 📚

Souvenir pressed pennies from your Lawrence favorites

Why should tourist traps have all the fun? It's about time we celebrated the darlings of LFK. Plus, ALL the money goes to local nonprofits.

Huh?

This penny machine moves to a new location every month, and every quarter is donated to a charity of the store's choice.

Where is it?

In October we're at Lawrence Public Library - 707 Vermont. Find the press there and get your souvenir penny with the limited-time-only design for the Library!

Where does the $ go?

Each month the host selects a local nonprofit. This month, every quarter you put into the machine is going to The LPL Friends & Foundation - supporting the library!

And next month?

Questions?

What's going on here?

You've got 12 months to collect 12 souvenir pennies, from a penny press machine that's migrating around to downtown local favorites in Lawrence.

Each month the press moves to a new location.

So I can collect all 12 designs?

That's right - 12 locations in Lawrence, 12 souvenir pennies. Plus a few bonus designs, maybe! You'll have to visit different locations through the year. Once we change out the design, your chance is gone!

Explain the charity thing again?

Every quarter you put into the machine is getting donated to a local nonprofit. The host store each month selects the charity!

Is it legal to deface US currency?

Are you a cop?

Who's doing this?

Local Crush is a project by Studio Kirkland.

But like seriously, why?

We wanted an excuse to buy a penny press.
