Library donation

In response to the letter to the editor in Thursday’s Creston News Advertiser, July 17, 2014, from Mandy Kolesik, marketing consultant for the Creston Library Board, I would like to point out in fairness that the $25,000 donated by the Gibson family 83 years ago would be equivalent to a donation of $400,000 in 2014. I believe this is the total amount of funds that have been raised this far for the new library project. Their contribution was far more significant when viewed from that perspective and should be acknowledged accordingly.
