The family of Marianne Belinda Morton wants her memory to live on through the Newton T. Bass Apple Valley Library.
Morton died unexpectedly on March 4, according to Marcella Taylor, a member of the “Friends of the Apple Valley Library” group.
The library, according to Taylor, had received $755 in cash in Morton’s name as of March 30.
Morton’s family also donated several children’s books in her name, each one bearing a large sticker on the inside cover that reads, “This Book Has Been Donated In Memory Of Belinda Morton.”
