The 412 Test Wing at Edwards Air Force Base donated 370 books from the base library to the Tehachapi Unified School District on Dec. 17. The donation is the second delivery of surplus material to the district under an Educational Partnership Agreement between the Air Force and the schools that supports educational institutions. Past and future donations consist of hundreds of computers. Program originator Douglas Hoffelt, technical transfer and research manager for four AF test sites, turned the books over to district librarian Ramona Turmezei, who will distribute them to the schools. The technology transfer program has donated $10,000 to the STEAM Center for the electrical upgrade fund.
