But the group never had the funds to buy more.
“Books are so expensive,” Taylor said. “They’re like $25 or $30 each.”
The group works on a shoestring budget, and there’s never any breathing room, Taylor said.
Now members can breathe a sigh of relief. Taylor said the gift will allow the organization to buy many new books without having to worry.
Taylor said she just wishes she knew who the donor was. In a letter to the Pharos-Tribune, she sent a message to whoever is behind the gift.
“Although ‘thank you’ hardly seems enough to show our appreciation, I do offer our sincere thanks, and assure you that we will use this gift to help those adult students who have placed their future in our hands,” she wrote.
