Children, seniors and shut-ins will have greater access to books, thanks to Bob Rohrman and his Gurnee-based auto group.

On Dec. 12, the Warren-Newport Public Library District in Gurnee celebrated an Outreach Services van donation from the Bob Rohrman Auto Group.

The donation, valued at $10,000, came as the result of Rohrman’s commitment to early literacy by bringing books to young readers. The van will be used to deliver materials to preschools, storytimes in the park, homebound patrons, senior housing lobbies and community events.

Warren-Newport Public Library is located at 224 North O’Plaine Road in Gurnee. Call 847.244.5150 for information.

Bob Rohrman Auto Group is at 6460 Gurnee Mills Circle West, in Gurnee.
