Katie, WDM

Moved back to WDM after 30 years. ...WDM library has been a big part in my healing process. Days spent in the library reading magazines. Just getting out of my apartment and being around people helped me on some of my worst days.  ...It's a peaceful place to forget your problems and fears. At least for a while. Continue to be grateful for the WDM library.
