Glenville, WV – A large amount of books have been donated to the Glenville State College Robert F. Kidd Library to be given away free to the public. ”These books will be great for anyone’s collection. This donation was perfect timing for summer reading,” said GSC Major Gifts Officer and GSC West Virginia Veterans Legacy Project Director Dr. Bob Henry Baber. He secured the donation from Visions, Vessels, and Victory Incorporated, a Glenville Christian-based nonprofit.
The books that were donated include Retribution: The Battle for Japan 1944-1945 by Max Hastings, Relentless (a novel) by Dean Koontz, Andy Rooney: 60 Years of Wisdom and Wit by Andrew A. Rooney, and Mathilda Savitch (a novel) by Victor Lodato.
Retribution: The Battle for Japan 1944-1945 follows the last year of the Pacific War. In addition to being available to the public, copies of the book will also be given away by the GSC West Virginia Veterans Legacy Project during Veterans Week in the Fall. “We are thrilled to be able to give this book to veterans and their families. This is a great read for any war history buff, all are also invited to stop in the library and get a copy while supplies last,” said GSC Library Associate Jason Gum, the overseer of the archives at GSC.
