West Elementary Library was given a generous donation from Missouri Basin Power Project to purchase books for their library. Kathy Jones from the Missouri Basin Power Project Community & Government Relations office was present to oversee the books delivered to West Elementary.  Sue Sluss, media specialist at West Library, worked with Dan Brecht from the Wandering Hermit, a local book store located downtown Wheatland, to get the books ordered and delivered.

Mr. Brecht has been very instrumental in working with West Elementary Library as well as other Platte County School District #1 schools to assist them with book order requests. Missouri Basin Power Plant also donated monies to Libbey Elementary and the Wheatland High School to help them stock their shelves with new books.
