Paying It Forward and Looking Back

The Heyworth Public Library is a place of community and awe inspiring gifts.  We were built with funds, sweat equity, and gift materials given by the community.  We continue to be supported by tax dollars and receive gifts to make our library’s collection and technology more current and viable today.  We want to take the time to thank the General Federated Woman’s Club of Heyworth for their generous gift of books each month, Gary Simpkins and Carl Hinshaw for their donation of magazines each month, Cathy and Dennis Wentworth of Downs for their memorial gifts in memory of Evelyn Dyer and Nelson Troyer, Barb Steiling for her memorial gift in memory of Marna “Jeanne” Lee, Vigil and Marilyn Butler’s memorial gift in memory of Ralph Ash, and to London, England resident James Swartz for his gift to the care and keeping of our local history materials in the library.  (He has ancestral ties to the Heyworth area.)  We have been the beneficiaries of a gift to honor the memory of Michael Collins with a #MCStrong Pay it Forward gift as well, and it will be announced fully when the materials arrive.  It is through these gifts and memorials that we can offer services and materials that go beyond the ordinary.  For more information on gifts, memorials or bequests contact Beth Porter at 473-2313.
