Crozet Library has been given a collection of books donated by the bookstores at National Parks across the country. Greta Miller, executive director of the Shenandoah National Park Association, which runs the park’s two visitor center bookstores, presented 105 books to Jefferson-Madison Regional Library Director John Halliday May 14.
Thirteen parks responded to an idea from Crozetian John Reynolds to collect books about parks for the library. The donated books include field guides and an impressive selection on Civil War subjects.
“This is the first time a request like this has been made,” said Miller. “Our focus is on supporting interpretative programs and so the books are valuable for topics in American geography and history.”
