A plea from Magness Library officials netted the facility a donation of $70,000 from the city – an additional $22,000 to its annual donation of $48,000.The push to increase the donation began during the city’s Finance Committee meeting Tuesday night.“Magness Library is requesting $3,500 to begin offering eBooks,” said Alderman Billy Wood. “I can’t remember when was the last time the library received an increase. Can anyone?”On the committee with Wood are Vice Mayor Everett Brock and Alderman Clair Cochran, who was absent.“The only thing about giving the library an increase is the maintenance of effort,” said Brock.
