JulieAnn, stay-at-home mom

I believe my daughter developed her appreciation for reading because of the comprehensive children's reading programs at the WDM Library. They are fun, educational and interactive. The staff are caring, know your child's name and listen with an open heart. I love our Children's Department!!
