“Thank you again for sponsoring this contest. We caught that picture of Lucy a little over a year ago when we heard her after bedtime rustling around in her crib. When I peeked in to see what was happening, I found that she had pulled books through her crib rails and was looking at them in the dark. I added a nightlight, took the picture, and gave her my blessing to keep reading. ❤️ It’s still a favorite of mine . . . a true “caught reading” moment! Lucy and I went to story time at the Maritime Museum yesterday and had a blast! How cool that we got a tour afterward! Thanks for such fun programming!
“Our ‘home’ MCLS library is Brillion (it’s across the street from our house), but I place holds on just as many books that end up coming from Manitowoc. I also used to coach Battle of the Books for Brillion for a few years so I am well aware of the power of the Manitowoc Library youth!
“We love participating in events and activities through the MCLS system! Thank you!”
