Macksville Public Library features new memorial books

The Macksville Public Library this week announced they are honored to share recent memorial books with patrons young and old.

“In memory of Bob Buckman, the first ten Hank the Cowdog books, by John Erickson, were donated, as well as the book, Sit. Stay. Love. Life Lessons from a Doggie, written by Chalaine Kilduff,” according to the announcement.

Bob loved dogs, the announcement said, adding “it is on good authority that he was once quoted as saying‘How can you raise kids without dogs?'”

“This librarian agrees, and goes one further,” the announcement continued. “How can you have a library without lots of books about dogs?!  So thankful to add to our collection. And, this past weekend a grandmother brought in four grandkids, with one specifically looking for a Hank the Cowdog book.”

Another recent memorial book was given in memory of Twylla Suiter.

“Twylla loved books, including those by Debbie Macomber,” the announcement said. “The author’s latest, The Best Is Yet to Come was given in Twylla’s name, and has already been read and recommended by two patrons.”

“Memorials were also given to the building fund in memory of Twylla,” it continued. “We are thankful to remember this avid reader and beloved community member and friend in this special way.”

The final memorial book spotlighted here was given in memory of Mark Zwink.

“Mark was a graduate of Macksville High School, a pitcher for the Mustangs, and a lifelong sports fan,” the announcement said. “The book given in his memory is Right Down the Middle: The Ralph Terry Story.
