GRAFTON, Iowa (AP) - The sale of a small fortune in coins has paid for improvements at a public library in northern Iowa.

Mason City television station KIMT reports (https://bit.ly/1h5DPFJ ) that a coin collection valued at more than $100,000 was inherited by the Grafton Public Library. The collection was donated by Lorraine Moore, who had inherited it from her father.

Librarian Nancy Walk says the sale proceeds paid for better lighting, new shelves, furniture, carpeting and other flooring and the installation of a stacked-stone fireplace.

Walk says the update was much needed.

Grafton is a Worth County town of about 250 residents.
