Library putting speaker fund to work for repairs

Leaky gutters and other festering problems at the Greenwood Public Library are being repaired with money raised from a talk by former Indiana University basketball coach Bob Knight.

The Knight to Remember fundraiser brought in about $60,000, library director Cheryl Dobbs said. The library has been putting that money toward fixes it hadn’t been able to afford before, including a drainage project to stop flooding in the children’s department offices.

“We’re able to do a significant amount of things we had been putting off,” she said. “We’re addressing safety issues and doing maintenance now that will contain expenses later.”
