Nobles County Farm Bureau President Tim Hansberger (right) presents 33 agriculturally-based children’s books to Prairie Elementary Library/Media Specialist Sara Oldre Wednesday morning. The book donation, valued at nearly $500, now means the school has two copies of each title available to loan out to students. (JULIE BUNTJER/DAILY GLOBE)
