In Appreciation

Much of today's library has been created by those civic minded people who have given gifts of both service and money. All of their names deserved to be mentioned in this story, but sheer numbers made this impossible.

Since the stories of the major benefactors who created our libraries needed to be told, this narrative mentioned the persons whose gifts and bequests were above an arbitrarily set sum, and it included the names of organizations that have, for long periods of time, contributed support for library services.

To the hundreds of people who have given memorials and have voluntarily worked on library projects goes the deep gratitude of those who love the library and appreciate all it has given to them.
