Hillwood High Library Renovated Thanks To Donation
NASHVILLE, Tenn.- Hundreds of students at one metro school got their hands on some brand new books thanks to a $500,000 gift.
On Wednesday, Mayor Dean and the Nashville Public Library dedicated the newly renovated Hillwood High School Library. Community advocates John and Stephanie Ingram donated the $500,000 gift that made the library possible.
Thanks to the donation the library space was expanded and modernized, additional books and materials were purchased and technology was upgraded.
"Private support like this generous gift from John and Stephanie Ingram helps us create world-class libraries in our schools," said Mayor Dean. "Hillwood students are checking out more library materials than ever through Limitless Libraries, and they now have the library space and technology they deserve to make reading and schoolwork easier and more enjoyable to help them achieve academic success."
The gift also went to Mayor Dean's "Limitless Libraries" program, giving Metro Students easy access to educational resources in their libraries and on the Internet.
