Jade M, author

I've been coming to the West Des Moines Library since I was two years old - I'm twelve years old. The library has helped grow my vocabulary, imagination, and love for reading. I will be a published author of a children's book in March 2012, but I wouldn't be so without my weekly visits to the reading palace.  I luv the library!
