$5000 Donation for New Library Chairs

Thanks to a generous gift of $5000 from library patron Cheryl Lassiter, the library was recently able to acquire many new chairs. Cheryl's discomfort sitting in the library's old computer chairs led to the donation, so the first things we purchased were a dozen black leather office chairs on casters. They are quite comfortable and very popular with the multitudes of people who use our public computers all day long.

The remaining money was used to purchase six comfortable lounge chairs for the magazine reading area. All of these new chairs replaced furniture that was originally purchased when the library addition was opened in 1985, so they were quite tired and worn out. Thank you again, Cheryl, for your generous donation!
