The Fayetteville Public Library received a major gift Monday. 

Jim Blair announced he will help with the library’s Beyond Words expansion project.

Executive Director Dave Johnson said that Blair’s latest gift is certain to inspire private support that is vital to the success of the $23 million capital campaign. 

Blair explained during a speech Monday why the library was a very important part of his life growing up.

“I accidentally acquired a very collective and omnivorous education, and it’s changed my life, and it’s enabled me to do things like I did today,” Blair said. 

Blair says he hopes that everyone takes advantage of the free knowledge that the Fayetteville Public Library offers.
