Cash needed

When I saw the line that Knight had made siginificant contributions I figured it was cash. But when you read the article that Blake provided from Texas Tech it looks like Knight donated books that he did not want. Probably was doing this as a tax write off. It sounds like ,ost pf the books went into the libraries popular reading collection. Translation, "we don't want to refuse books from someone like Knight." To bad that instead of refusing his $250,000 salary for one year he should have accepted it and then donated it to the library.
