A Special Gift to the Library!

This year, I was given a grant to purchase books for our library.  The grant was given to my library (and to each of the elementary libraries) by our Education Foundation in memory of a district employee who passed away last year.  An avid reader, his family thought that using memorial gifts to purchase books was a perfect remembrance.

A colleague and I met with his wife, who was also a long-time district employee (and dear friend). We learned that in addition to being an avid reader and driving a school bus for our district, he was also a HUGE sports' fan.

So I used this gift to purchase books about sports (here are a few)...

and bus driving...

I have the honor of having his grandson in my school.  So "T" and I spent part of the morning putting stickers in each of the books!

Thank you to the Education Foundation and the family for this very generous gift.  A great way to celebrate a great man!
