The Vermillion Public Library owes a huge debt of gratitude to Dr. Maurine Richardson. Dr. Richardson is retiring from the School of Education at USD and is donating her vast collection of educational resources, cookbooks, children�s books, stuffed animals and puppets to the library. Many of the books have been added to the collection. Some were sold at the recent Friends of Vermillion Public Library Used Book Sale, the proceeds of which directly benefit the library and its patrons. Hundreds of the children�s books are in new condition and will be offered as incentive prizes for the Summer Reading Program, along with many of the stuffed animals and puppets.
Dr. Richardson�s generosity will have a positive impact on Vermillion Public Library patrons for years to come, especially our young readers. Thank you, Dr. Richardson, for sharing your love of reading, books, and children�s literature with our library. We wish all the best to you and your husband in your retirement.
