The Princeton Public Library received a generous donation from the Georgia Fay estate in the amount of $195,000. Library board president Carolyn Schafer (pictured at right) and trustee Lani Swinford were on hand along with director Julie Wayland (at left) to accept the generous donation on Wednesday, September 25, at Perry Memorial Hospital. As a result of Ms. Fay’s generosity, the library will be able to sustain services to the community well in to the future and adapt to technological advances as they become relevant. According to Board President Carolyn Schafer, “This gift will benefit the library patrons of the community for years to come. We will always be grateful for Georgia Fay’s thoughtfulness in remembering the library. The library is humbled to be acknowledged in such an unexpected and heartfelt manner.” The people who worked on the distribution, particularly executor of Georgia Fay’s estate, Rex Piper (at center), are also appreciated by the library for all of the time and effort they contributed in seeing to it that Ms. Fay’s legacy was fulfilled.
