The Marshall County Cooperative Library Bookmobile driver Terri Ball partnered with the nursing homes in Guntersville and Albertville to spread some cheer to the residents for Christmas.

Terri posted on social media that the residents needed to be adopted for Christmas. The Guntersville High School faculty, clubs and athletics adopted the Albertville residents. Many people responded to the social media post and all the residents at Marshall Manor and some at Barfield were adopted and given some Christmas joy from the community. The COVID 19 has affected these senior adults not being able to see their loved ones except through window visits and phone calls.

The Marshall County Cooperative Library has been in existence since the 1970’s. The purpose is to provide rural areas, senior centers, daycares and Head Starts with library services. The Bookmobile has all large print books and operates on a rotating basis every other week at various stops. It also provides home-bound patrons using the mail-a-book program.

The Marshall County Cooperative Library would like to thank the community for responding to this act of kindness. Spreading kindness cost nothing but means everything.
