Library Collection Boxes at BB&T Bank

Posted on: January 25, 2010

Here’s a good deed for the New Year that is convenient and will cost only your time. Clean out your closets and take those used books, DVDs, CDs and tapes to BB&T Bank.


That’s right, make a deposit at the bank for your libraryBB&T has generously donated space for Murphy Library’s collection boxes at each of its three branches: King Street in Murphy, Highway 64 West, and in Wal-Mart.


This is another brainstorm of Nora King, the past president of Friends of Murphy Library and now its Fundraising Chair.  Her good ideas do not cost a lot but they reap big rewards.


Nora King’s husband Larry crafted the wooden boxes by hand.  And BB&T Bank managers: Teresa O’Blenes, Financial Center Leader of 251 King Street Branch; Marge Gaulin,  Branch Manager, Wal-Mart Branch; and Tami Humphryes, Financial Center Leader, 1911 W. US Hwy 64 Branch, quickly found the perfect spot for them. See their photo above by Jane Hembree.


The books and other media you find in your cupboards might go into the library’s collection or onto a shelf in the Friends Book Store and the money earned from its sale will help buy new books.  Either way, the citizens of Cherokee County win.  Call 837-2417.
