Great work, Julia!

We'd like to take a moment to congratulate one of our regular library patrons, Julia.

Julia LOVES books, and wanted to find a way to take her love and give back to the community in some way. She saw a sign at the local Starbucks saying that they were looking for volunteers, and when she asked if she could read books to kids younger than her, they couldn't refuse. They even told her that she could get free chocolate milk, since she was too young to drink coffee!

Starbucks was so thrilled with the success of Julia's storytimes that they asked her to return once a month. Now, you can see her storytimes on the first Monday of every month from 4-5pm. Starbucks provides chocolate milk and cookies to all the kids, and we're quite certain Julia picks nothing but the best when it comes to the books!

What kinds of things are you doing for your community?
