So tell us: what role has Phoenix Public Library played in your life?

    I currently work at the Vista Grande Library in Casa Grande; however, after seven years I am now considering retirement in August of 2016. I am also the Vice President of the Friends of the Casa Grande Library and will consequently be President from 2017 to 2019. I am looking forward to attending the Conference in May.

    When I was 7 years old I went to live with my Grandmother. The Library was just down the hill from her house. She had to go with me because it was across a busy street. She held my hand and walked me across and into the building. I had to stop. I was in awe. I was like a kid in a candy store. I took 5 books home. Next week I took 5 more. By the time of 2 years I had read all the children’s books. What a wonderful place that was. The Librarian introduced me to Sherlock Holms. I will never forget that first day. I am 73 years old and it seems like yesterday.

    The Ironwood Library is build on land that was once my father’s farm! How special is that!

    This will sound negative at first . . . but one day while sharing the Central library’s elevator with a few teenage boys, I heard one of them curse. It wasn’t an especially bad swearword and I didn’t react to it at all. But the boy who said it noticed me and apologized. I accepted the apology and left the elevator thinking that simply being in the library brings out the best in people.

    Hello…I taught my children and many others to read between the ages of three and five in a very fun and natural way. Sixty six % of children over all groups in the fourth grade do not read up to grade level….Starting early at home is my answer. I even wrote a book about it…Go to childrensreadingsuccess.com…..to see what I mean…..Louise
