I love the WDM library. All the librarians help me find books but Betsy helps me the most. With her help, I find a lot of good books. At the WDM library, I can get books from good series. I enjoy the library. It's so much fun. I like reading and at the library I can find books that I enjoy. Thank you WDM library!
