Why do you love the library?
As a young child, I always loved to read. Books were one of my favorite things. As I grew older, I would take many trips to our local library to check out stacks of books and always carried my library card with me. The library was always a great place to visit to check out books, audiobooks, and even puppets. I always looked forward to my mom taking me to the library as a child and as I grew older, visiting the library was a thing I always did. As I attended college to continue my studies to become an educator and a school librarian, the university library became a second home. As an adult, I visited the Collierville Library with my own children for them to check out books and to attend many of the events and programs that were planned throughout the years. I just simply love the library for the many opportunities it provides to so many: books, eBooks, programs, audio and visual materials, and computers. My service as a school librarian in Collierville was one of the most rewarding experiences since I was able to share my love of reading with so many children within the school and promote the use of libraries. I continue to love the library because it has been such a huge part of my personal and professional life.
