Friends of the Des Plaines Public Library recently donated eleven books to the library in memory of long-time Friends member Roy Terp.
"Since he was a young boy, libraries were always an important part of Roy Terp's life" says his daughter, Susan Terp. "Dad was a life-long reader of books, as well as a daily reader of the Chicago Tribune. He enjoyed all types of books and his favorite topics were history, biography, historical fiction, and mysteries."
Once retired, Roy gave back to the library through his volunteer work with the Friends of the Des Plaines Public Library, where he was an active and much-respected contributor.
The titles chosen for the collection by the Friends of the Library focus on his favorite topics and include War Photographs Taken on the Battlefields of the Civil War by Matthew B. Brady; Brothers at War: The Unending Conflict in Korea by Sheila Miyoshi Jager; The Boys in the Boat: Nine Americans and Their Epic Quest for Gold at the 1936 Berlin Olympics by Daniel Brown; and eight additional titles.
