LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) — Lawrence Public Library has received a gift of nearly $230,000 from the estate of a former librarian.
The Lawrence Journal-World reports (http://bit.ly/1PiS3yM ) the library said Monday the gift from the estate of Ann L. Hyde is the largest single contribution the library has ever received.
Hyde was the manuscripts librarian in the Department of Special Collections at the university's Kenneth Spencer Research Library. She retired in 2000 and died in 2014 at age 83.
The Lawrence Humane Society announced last week that Hyde's estate also gave the shelter nearly $500,000. The gift will go toward the humane society's future $5 million project to either renovate its facility or build a new one.
