It was very important to Jerry that he kick off his book tour in his hometown.
More than 200 books were sold, and the signing went on for three and a half hours.
All of the profits were donated to the library.
Also on hand was Monroe Henderson (below) who played with Jerry on the Wichita Falls Stars in the summer of 1960.
The event was a huge success, and Jerry was pleased to learn that the amount donated was just over $2,700.
It is a real tribute to how much the people of Jacksboro care about the library.
