SHEPHERDSTOWN, W.Va. — The Rotary Club of Shepherdstown has donated $3,000 to the Shepherdstown Public Library. The funds will be used to purchase new e-book readers.

Half of the donation amount represents the proceeds from a Club-sponsored "Barbeque and Beer for Books" event held to benefit the library on Sept. 24 at the Bavarian Inn.

The other half was a matching grant from Rotary District 7350, which includes 44 Rotary Clubs in northeastern West Virginia, central Maryland and central Pennsylvania.
