Library Director Juanita Hazelton of Van Alstyne (just south of Sherman) TX has offered overdue borrowers a reprieve on paying late fees...they just have to contribute to construction of the new library instead through a gift to the Friends of the Library (and that's tax deductible). And if their contribution is $35.00 or more, their names will be listed on a leaf of a donor tree.
The $220,000 library building project has been on-going for five years, when the planning and fundraising stages began. Half a decade and $125,000 later, the library extension has four new walls, a roof, windows and all but one doorway. More from the Herald Democrat .
