Laura, stay-at-home grandma

First I want to thank you for providing great programs. I moved here in June and knew no one. I am a stay at home grandma taking care of my then 14 month old grand baby, now 19 months old. We have been coming here weekly getting books, tapes, videos, puppets, puzzles and also attending the story times. She now has a love for reading and it has helped us feel like we belong in a community. Again, thank you.
