LIBRARY RECEIVES BOOK DONATION

 

 Recently long-time Western Brown educator Blaine Wallace decided that his book shelves needed some relief.  As a huge history and sports' buff, Wallace has collected hundred and hundreds of sports and history books over the years.  However, he was finding out that he needed to let some of his prized collection go to make room for new acquisitions.  He contacted the high school's media/specialist to see if the high school library could use a 'few' books from his vast collection. After Mr. Wallace was told that the library would indeed accept his generous donation, he soon boxed up nearly 150 hard cover and paperbound books and delivered them to the high school library.  Upon seeing the books from Mr. Wallace, Mr. McKenzie, the district's media/specialist was stunned at the amout and condition of the books.  After thanking Mr. Wallace for his generosity, Mr. McKenzie assured Mr. Wallace that he would begin cataloging the books and getting them on the shelves for the students at the high school to enjoy.
 
The students and staff send a huge thank you to Mr. Wallace.
