Fans of "the General," Roll Out!

Our colleagues at Greenwood Public Library (GPL) are sponsoring a fund-raiser for their library featuring famous former Indiana University men's basketball coach Bob Knight.  Fans of "the General" will want to attend this event.  Knight is always an interesting speaker with a lifetime of sports stories to share, mixed with some homespun wisdom.

Proceeds from this event directly support Greenwood Public Library, which needs your financial assistance to continue providing its award-winning programs and resources.  Did you know that (this year) the Public Library Association (PLA) of the American Library Association (ALA) has honored GPL staff for their professional contributions?  Youth services instructors at the highly-rated Indiana University Schools of Library & Information Science (SLIS) (there are two of them, in Indianapolis and Bloomington) have used GPL's youth services department as a top model for their students.  GPL staff routinely offer workshops at annual state and national library conferences.  It is a fine library worthy of our support.  Plus, GPL is an Evergreen Indiana library (same as mine), so E.I. cardholders who support GPL are, in effect, supporting one of their own libraries.

Thanks For Your Generous Support of GPL,

P.S.  Here's a short video clip announcing Ohio State University's tribute to Coach Knight, who played for the Buckeyes men's basketball team during 1958-1962 (including its 1960 NCAA championship team).  How they found those old media film clips amazes moi.

  1. Hey, Thanks, Cauli! We are really looking forward to the Bob Knight event, which was created by local families who have been impacted by our library services over the years and want to see us succeed. Nothing is better than the close support of your community and fellow libraries! Thanks for the shout out!
