[Library Benefactor George Olincy]

Description:

George Olincy, benefactor to the Marshall Public Library building project. He was chairman of the Andrew Norman Foundation and offered a challenge grant toward a new library building to Audrey Kariel, Project Director. He suggested that the challenge be given to the Friends of a Public Library rather than the city of Marshall. The Friends were able to match the challenge. The cooperation of the city, the library trustees, and the Friends ensured a successful building project that has been a source of civic pride.
