My Library Story: Kally

"I am not sure I would have ever made it this far, if it was not for those trips to the library."

"I grew up at the library, my grandma would take us to the library (Monett Branch of the Barry-Lawrence Regional Library) once a week. She would let us pick out books for her to read to us, and then later we would pick out books for us to read together. I consider my love of reading and learning to have come from her. I am in college now, and I am not sure I would have ever made it this far, if it was not for those trips to the library. I am the first in my farming-family to go to college."
