Henderson Library receives $10,000 donation

The Friends of Zach S. Henderson Library at Georgia Southern University have given $10,000 to the library’s endowment.

The annual interest from endowment funds is used to purchase books and subscribe to various electronic resources.

‘As the costs of information resources continue to increase faster than the University’s budget, we are very grateful for private support,” said W. Bede Mitchell, the dean of the Henderson Library. ‘This gift will not only benefit Georgia Southern’s faculty and students, but also the entire region since all Georgia residents and businesses are welcome to use the Henderson Library.”

The Friends organization is dedicated to supporting and strengthening the Henderson Library’s services and collections. According to advisory board chair Laura Wheaton, the money donated to the library endowment was raised through annual membership dues and a variety of special events, such as the December book signing at Statesboro’s Gallery 33 West by University historian Del Presley, who wrote ‘The Southern Century: Georgia Southern University 1906-2006.”
