$1000 Donation from inmates at WCCW

Doug Gelis, one happy librarian with $1000 donation

When the inmates at Washington Corrections Center for Women heard that my book budget was frozen ( again ) , they asked me if there was anything that they could do. I informed them that I could take donations. Soon after this the tier reps approached me and said they were going to do a fundraiser for the library. Last week I sent a check to Laura Sherbo for $1000.00 which is earmarked for the purchase of books for WCCW Library. A very big thank you goes out to all of the inmates at WCCW.

  1. As the song says,
    “Don’t tell me this town ain’t got no heart,
    You just gotta poke around.”

    This generosity shows how valuable the library is for the people there.
