The Morgantown Public Library has received copies of William F. DeVault's "The Compleat Panther Cycles" and "The Morgantown Suite Poems" to honor recently deceased librarian Rich Hart.

On October 2, The Romantic Poet of the Internet gave copies of his two most recent volumes to the library where Mr. Hart had worked as a librarian for a decade.

The poet, recently honored by the Appalachian Education Initiative as one of 50 oustanding creative artists from the Mountain State, expressed his sentiments in a statement that reads "I had met with Rich on previous occasions to discuss doing a video recording of a reading for the library's cable access program. He was a good man and extremely dedicated to the written word. He will be missed and the opportunity to get to work with him in the future is a personal loss to me."

Prior to this donation, the poet's volumes on the shelves at the library in his hometown included "From an Unexpected Quarter", "PanthEon" and "101 Great Love Poems".
