A local Delta Kappa Gamma chapter’s library project recently donated checks to two area school libraries.

Wendy Dallman, of Delta Kappa Gamma’s Nu Chapter, gave $200 to Katie Kovalaske, instructional resource coach at New London Middle School. Kovalaske said she will use the money to purchase books with strong female characters. Similarly, Judy Kucksdorf presented a $200 check to Kristy Bogacz, librarian for the Shawano School District. That donation will be used in the Brener Intermediate School Library.

Delta Kappa Gamma is an international society of key women educators. The Nu Chapter includes educators from Shawano and Waupaca counties.
