The Stillwater Public Library staff thanks everyone who donated a book and helped make this year’s Holiday book drive a success.

Library staff said the generosity of the community and the Minnesota Golden Gophers men’s basketball team helped make this year’s book drive the best in several years.

Gophers’ men’s coach Tubby Smith has always stressed giving back to the community and this year, the team’s efforts doubled the number of book donations. They also presented a $500 check to the Head Start program, a close affiliate of the Stillwater Public Library.
