Roanoke Library receives $5,000 donation

Posted: Friday, January 25, 2013

The John & Gale Mann Foundation recently presented the Roanoke Public Library Building Corporation with a $5,000 donation.  The gift is for the group’s capital campaign to move the library from its current location on Main Street in Roanoke to a larger facility in the former Coil Factory.

Accepting the check for the library was retired Air Force Colonel Perry Collins, a member of the board of directors. The presentation took place onstage during intermission at the recently sold out performance by duo Shade ‘N Shannon of music by Johnny Cash and Patsy Cline at the Cottage Event Center.
