Preserving history: UP gives $50,000 grant to Barriger library

Libraries don’t get by without at least a little help from their civic-minded friends. And the John W. Barriger III National Railroad Library’s got a pretty good friend in Union Pacific Railroad.

UP recently awarded Barriger — a special collection of the St. Louis Mercantile Library at the University of Missouri-St. Louis, Barriger — a $50,000 grant, which the library plans to use to acquire "rare and unique materials, including books, documents and other archival materials, and artifacts related to the history of railroading in America," according to a prepared statement.
