 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.

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.
