'The Walking Man' is also 'The Library Man'
Wednesday, May 17, 2017
Rick Herron, sometimes known around town as "The Walking Man," should really be known as "The Library Man." Often during his daily walks, Rick comes into the library. He reads the newspaper, accesses the world through the public computers and indulges his passion for history with the library's selection of nonfiction chronicles. But the main reason he should be known as "The Library Man" is because of the generous monetary contributions he makes to the Gentry Public Library. Rick has given to the library many times. He earmarked his most recent contribution specifically for the purchase of books for the library, which library director Darla Threet was delighted to do.
