The Windsor Public Library has received $250,000 from the estate of Norman Young who passed away February 13, 2013 and his wife Denise Young. The gift is general in nature and has no restricted or specific use.

Mr. Young was a Border Guard with no formal education, but both he and his wife had a deep appreciation for learning and knowledge. Denise was an author and artist and Norman was a geologist, oceanographer, stamp collector, coin collector, birder, astronomer and a science enthusiast. They both lived through the Great Depression and developed an appreciation for saving.

“We are truly humbled by the generosity of Norman Young. The WPL Board will be reviewing an appropriate use for the gift that honours the donor’s interest and support of reading and lifelong learning.” said CEO Kitty Pope said.

In keeping with Windsor Public Library and City of Windsor process, all expenditures have to be approved by both the Library Board and then City Council.
