Patron bequeaths $70K to Library

April 5, 2012

Longtime Grandview Library patron Henry Rawles, who passed away two years ago at age 82, bequeathed $70,000 to the Library.

Mr. Rawles was a beloved patron for decades, even after moving from Grandview Heights to Upper Arlington in the 1960s. He worked in Battelle’s science library but was also a self-taught artist, exhibiting his paintings many times over the years at the Library. His wife Beverly has presented the Library with one of his paintings, which hangs in the Reference department (photo on right).

Thank you for this oustanding, generous gift that will enable the Library to better serve its patrons and the community!
