I’ve always loved libraries! There is something about being surrounded by nothing but books (and now much more)!  As my son grew up we spent many hours reading and attending the various kids programs at the local library. And, at 50 years old, when I decided to get my Bachelor’s Degree, the library resources were invaluable. I look forward to working with the Friends of the South Whatcom Library Board!
