A longtime volunteer at Nancy Hanks Elementary in Spencer County is closing her books.

Helen Gunn, known to students as Grandma Gunn, has been reading to kids once a week for 20 years at Nancy Hanks Elementary. Gunn, who turned 89 today, felt it was time to end her run at Nancy Hanks.

Students gave her birthday cards and presented her with a poem, poster and plaque at an assembly.

Gunn said she hopes to go skydiving when she turns 90 next year.
