What is your favorite part of working at the Library Foundation?

I love getting out to all the branches. Each is so unique and special and yet they all work for a common purpose. Libraries have always been a big part of my life and have met some pretty important needs (mostly keeping a voracious reader in books) but I’ve depended on libraries for school projects and for internet access.
