CRANSTON, R.I. (AP) - The Cranston Public Library Association is allowing the public to buy segments of walkways that will display an image and short message - but only when it rains.

The Providence Journal reports (https://bit.ly/1KXKy09 ) the library system’s newest fundraiser encourages the public to pay $25 for a 46-by-46-inch square. The donor can then choose one of three images and add a personal message up to 10 characters that will appear only during rainfall.

The images feature an open book, a set of mechanical gears and the Cranston Public Library logo.

Library staff members and volunteers will use stencils and a water-repellent solution to create the image and message. Library officials say the images are expected to last six months to a year.

Orders must be placed by Sept. 19.
