The Earl Park Public Library's Collection Development Angel

Woman keeps library alive with book donations. (WDAM, 12/20/2011)

Excerpt: Librarian Connie Sparenberg says book donations from people like Delp keep the library thriving. The town has less than 350 people, and the library depends on taxes for funding.

"If it wasn't for Marian, I really don't know how we would continue to expand our collection," Sparenberg said.

Of the estimated 25,000 books at Earl Park, at least 25 to 30 percent were donated by Delp.

"All of our books on CD have come from Marian, 95 percent of our DVDs have come from Marian," Sparenberg said
