When I was young, I went to the library housed in the basement of a building on the Independence square. While attending Palmer Junior High, I would sometimes walk to the square after school and use the library facility. My second grade teacher was a librarian there.
When my children were young, we would go to the library in Grain Valley. I loved it, and my children loved it because the librarians made you feel welcome and at home. It was a good influence on my children, and the love of reading was instilled in them at a young age.

Everyone says I am crazy to continue working in two completely different worlds, but at the same time, both are tons of fun.
