Chosen for his record of 278 wins and 100 losses over a 16-year period as a basketball coach in two different schools, Doerr has also had success with his track and football teams. His teams captured Class B crowns in Wyoming during 1968-69 in all three sports. Bob’s wife, the former Hazel Meeks, accompanied him on the Chicago trip.

Many items added to the library project are evident on the outside, including exterior brick flower planters, flag pole and brick seating area, handicap ramp, sidewalks with red coloring, two parking spaces and additional landscaping.
