DARLINGTON – The Darlington School Board of Education accepted several more donations toward the high school library at the meeting Monday night, Oct. 16.
The board members approved $1,920 in donations at the meeting, making the total donations at $12,403. In September, a motion to accept a bid for new stacks (shelving) for the newly renovated high school library failed, 4-4.

Those donations accepted at the Monday night meeting were from Laurie Fink, Robert & Jeanne Boyle, the Darlington American Legion Post 214, Ronald & Marlene Roewer, Mary Pat & Robert Vosberg, Mary Jo Finkenbinder, James & Myra Taylor, Janette Steger, Rielly Family Farms c/o Mark & Carmen Rielly, Walter & Margaret Taylor, Lee & Nita Burke, and Tim & Julie Shager.
