MEMORIAL FUND. Pat and Jensen Yerxa (left) present East Adams Library District (EALD) Director Kylie Fullmer with a $2,500 check from the Kathy Yerxa Memorial Children’s Book Fund. Kathy served as an elementary school teacher for over 40 years. She passed away on Oct. 19, 2017. Because of her passion for reading, both personally and to children, the memorial fund was created to help benefit local children. Fullmer stated she was amazed by the generosity of the community and the amount of money donated to the fund. Fullmer said EALD plans to use the donation to purchase a small collection of books, which will be put on special display for families to check out from the library. Each book will have a memorial bookplate, stating “Donated in memory of Kathy Yerxa, who inspired children to love reading.” Fullmer added because of the amount of the donation, the library board and staff will need to determine what to do with the remaining funds. She hopes to improve the children’s room and dedicate a portion of it in Kathy’s memory.
