I grew up in WDM and visited the "old" library on Grand Avenue every Saturday.  I still remember the help and encouragement I received from the staff members, who undoubtedly understood the value of my insatiable appetite for books! Today, at 50, I've had a successful writing and editing career for years... I credit that little building on Grand and its warm, wonderful staff with giving a young girl in the 1970s the tools to create a future with the written word.
