Retiring UW president donates books to Meeteetse
LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) — University of Wyoming President Tom Buchanan is donating several hundred of his books to the library in Meeteetse.
A malfunctioning sprinkler system damaged more than 5,000 books at the library in February. It has been taking in donations to help replenish its collections.
Buchanan is retiring shortly and has been cleaning out his office on campus. His last day on the job is June 28.
The books being donated by Buchanan are classic works of fiction and nonfiction, including history, philosophy, social commentary and biographies of contemporary international leaders.
