2,000 new books for library

Morning News donates books for second year in row
If you thought you’d read everything the Ennis Public Library has to offer, think again.
For the second year running, the library has received 2,000 books from the Dallas Morning News and approximately half of those will be going on the shelves for patrons to read.
“It was a real blessing,” Kathy Morse said. “To get these books this year was unbelievable.”
Morse said the Dallas Morning News’ Lifestyles department donates the books after the staff critiques them. Morse said this is the second year the Ennis library has received a donation of this size from the newspaper.
According to Morse, about 1,000 of the donated books would be put on the library’s shelves and the other half the Friends of the Library would sell at Bluebonnet Trails to raise funds for the library.
“We look at this as a real gift,” Morse said. “It’s like Christmas in February.”
Morse said nearly all the books are new and categories range from fiction, nonfiction and biographies to political and coffee table books.
