Students at Mason Elementary School received a very special valentine yesterday in the form of more than 20 books from Malone University. Malone's popular spirit character Maxamoose was on hand to deliver the gift in person to a group of appreciative school children.
Mary-Ann Frischkorn, circulation technical support at the Malone University library joined Jennifer Hollinger from the School of Education and Human Development as "Maxamoose" presented the Mason Elementary school library with the books donated by Malone students, staff, and faculty. The collection began last fall in celebration of Dr. King's inauguration. Donors selected their books from a list provided by Janelle Schuler, Mason Elementary principal, and Kathy Kisha-Wise, teacher at Mason and Malone alumna. The books will be added to Mason's library; each book includes a book plate with the donor's name.
