Reading is the absolute best! As an only child, I often spent a lot of time alone and books were the best way to keep myself occupied. We went to the library every week and I loved being able to pick out books myself that I was interested in reading. Books are a great way to learn about the world, other cultures and have adventures! I loved books so much, I wanted to be a librarian when I grew up. After a few detours in life, I know work at VPL in the children's department and I get to share my love of books with kids every day! Storytime is the best part of my day and watching kids walk away from the library with a book they are excited to read is so rewarding.
