DUBUQUE On April 28, seventeen-year-old Isabella Auer passed away from terminal brain cancer. Now, her family has created a lending library in her name using memorial funds and donations. When asked what the inspiration was for creating this library, Isabellas mother, Misty Auer, said,

I wanted to do something to honor her memory and was inspired to create a unique library full of books which are often not available in public libraries. This came from my memories of Isabellas love of reading and, in particular, her love of meaningful wholesome literature filled with characters who are true role models. She always wished these books would have been available at the local library. Instead, many times families have to buy these books if they want to read them.
