LuVerne Plans For Library Get A Boost LuVerne's plans for construction of a new library costing somewhere around $40,000 received a big lift, last week, when it was learned that a Mason City benefactor had madeadona- tion of $10,000 from a library benefit trust, and about 53% of the total needed could be obtained from a Federal grant, or about $21,200. This would leave about $8,800 to be raised locally by LuVerne for the project. In order to meet all requirements for these grants, however, it is necessary for the library to build up its total number of books. A total of 1404 books are needed, and the library now has 850, so about 600 more books are needed. Books of all kinds may be donated and left at the City Hall. They can also be picked up, and anyone with books can contact James Mallory, Mrs. Harry Naff- zlnger at LuVerne, or Mrs. Wm. Goetsch, with a Livermore telephone.
