Lindsay L., mom and financial professional

I have been a book lover practically since birth -- my parents regularly caught me trying to read under my covers with a flashlight long after "lights out" time when I was growing up, and I still have a book in my hand every chance I get. Now that I have a two-and-a-half year old to pass my love of reading down to, I feel very blessed to have a wonderful facility like the WDM library just minutes away from home. She gets very excited about going to the "yibardy" and her squeals of delight as she runs to the children's section elicit the world's biggest smile from me!
