CASPER, Wyoming — Books are flooding back into the Meeteetse (muh-TEET'-see) library.
The library has received more than 650 donated books after a sprinkler system damaged more than 5,000 of its books in February. The little library lost its whole western collection and much of its mystery and adult fiction sections.
Librarian Valerie Doyle says tons of books have come from all over the state.
Libraries in Fremont, Laramie, Campbell and Natrona County weeded through their duplicates to donate books, but the biggest surprises have come from private donors.
Doyle tells the Casper Star-Tribune (http://bit.ly/172AvV7 ) that one woman donated some hard-to-find, hardcover editions of Zane Gray westerns.
A man donated 105 Louis L'Amour western novels after he read about the flood in the newspaper.
