Alumni gift will expand education library's storytelling collection

A recent donation made to the IU School of Education from alumni Kate and John Ranshaw will be used to purchase materials such as puppets, felt figures and instruments to enhance the storytelling collection maintained by the IU Libraries Education Library.

The Ranshaws both received bachelor's degrees from the School of Education in the late 1970s and later established the John and Kate Ranshaw Early Childhood Education Scholarship. They continue to support future educators.

"We understand the importance of reading and language development for all children, and we're excited to be able to support the library and Christina (Jones) with this hands-on project to aid future educators," the Ranshaws said.
