Donation by High School Class of 1955
The Perry County High School Class of 1955 recently made a generous donation to the Perry County Library in Linden to memorialize one of their own. Lena Jo Horner Kidd, who passed away in January 2020, was a frequent visitor to the library and an avid reader.
According to classmate Lavinia Dabbs, "We knew the library could use the money to buy new books for the collection."
Library Director Gail Spragins said, "We are grateful to the Class of 1955 for thinking of the library in making a donation in memory of Mrs. Kidd. Their donation will be put to good use for the community. We encourage other groups to remember their local libraries as worthy recipients of donations."
