Custer County Library

When Mary Alice Howard of Roslindale, MA hit the big 5-0 she decided to mark the milestone with less cake and ice cream and acknowledge some of her favorite things: libraries and nature. After visiting our small town in South Dakota on the 4th of July some years back, she decided to include us in her plan to send each of the 50 states $50 to buy children's nature books for their library. What a wonderful birthday gift to our community! I just thought you would like to know there are good people out there - and it warms you up to hear good news about good people!
