THE STORY:

I am so excited to be supporting such a great community resource as I run my first marathon this year.

The library has been a haven to me for many years. When I was a child, I enjoyed bringing home tote bags of books that held stories and vibrant images. I sat cross legged on the floor, enchanted by story hour on weekday mornings, and I fell asleep to storybooks on tape. As an adult, the library has kept me connected with technology when I needed to study, look for jobs or print out resumes and I didn't have the resources at home. The library has offered free yoga classes, seminars and beekeeping workshops that have caused me to forget that I am in a library at all. I have taken a chance on the most bizarre and interesting books- (it's not like at a bookstore where you waste money if you don't like it!) and some of those books have changed my life. The library has given me so much, and it is with much joy that I have the opportunity to give back a little bit.
