Donor Spotlight: Ann and Morriss Henry

Why we support the library:

Ann: When I grew up in Tulsa and my favorite times in the summer were when Mother took us to the Tulsa bookmobile and we got to check out books to bring home and read! Books sent me to another world and taught me so many things! Reading has always been a big part of my life. When I retired from the University of Arkansas Walton College of Business I agreed to chair the fundraising group for the new library and spent 4 years in that endeavor. The new addition is needed and it will continue to be a big part of so many people’s lives in Fayetteville.

Morriss: Growing up in Ft Smith where there was a library was special for me. I went frequently and brought home books that taught me about the broader world. Libraries are different today but continue to impact family lives in a positive way.

We are grateful to live in fabulous Fayetteville which values education and reading and learning!
