University Libraries

Winner Fund

Established in June 2006 by Mr. Larry J. and Diane M. Winner in memory of their daughter, Katie Marie, for the purchase of books in poetry and English. Katie was a WSU Library Student Assistant from 2001 until her untimely death in 2005. Her family hosted the first "Butterfly Book Benefit" in her hometown of Wapakoneta, Ohio, on April 29, 2006. Proceeds from this benefit were donated to the Auglaize County Public Library and to the University Libraries, from which this Book Support Fund was created.
