Desk dedication


Shannon Ireland

The Sidney Public Library received the donation to get a new desk about a year ago. The previous desk had been in place for 45 years, and with advancements in computers and technology, a desk more suited to those needs was needed for the various wires.

The Martha Hammond Walker memorial desk was put in at the end of September.

"This was just a God send," Doris Jensen of the Library said.

Pictured are Walker's family members; Warren Johnson, Doug Armbruster, Dan Rowen, Julie Armbruster, Marilee Rowen, Debbie Lewis, Dorothy McMillen, Paul McMillen, Carolyn McMillen, June Katen, Ken McMillen and Nan Mull.

"She would be really glad to see her name there," June Katen said as she motioned toward the sign on the desk.

The desk was made by Cornhusker State Industries, which is a program through the Nebraska Correctional Institutions that allows inmates to learn and hone useful skills.
