A Man's Reach -- A Transforming Life, 69: Elmer Loves Books

Minnesota Library Association, Distinguished Achievement Award, 1994

"Recently a high school boy called on us. He said he and fifteen other young people were trying to raise $5,000 for a library fund at a school district some distance from our home. He came because a friend of mine told him, 'Elmer Andersen loves books. You ought to see Elmer.'"
