Why the Library:
“I am an avid reader and as a child into my adulthood it is not uncommon that I am reading several books at once. The library has always been a respite for me and I always feel safe and cozy inside those walls. When I started volunteering for FVRL, arranging and stacking books for a sale, I knew I had to be involved with the library directly again. In the library, anything is possible. Love, hope, equality, peace, justice….it’s all in there.”
