December 30, 2022
The week between Christmas and New Year’s Day is my time to reflect on the year past and to rest for the year ahead.
This has been one of the most incredible years of my life. My partner and I welcomed a daughter into our lives last January and it’s been full of milestones for us all. First smiles, favorite foods and an iPhone that is 98% pictures of her sweet face.
We also celebrated many milestones at the Library this year. Our new mobile Library “MoLi” has exceeded expectations and increased our reach to under-served communities. We grew to 21 this year with the opening of a highly-anticipated new branch in Pineville. We launched a new competition “Book Club Madness” and saw firsthand the enthusiasm and intelligence of our local reading community. And to make things even better, Verse & Vino and EpicFest were back in person with award-winning authors and incredible crowds.
These milestones were possible because of you. Thank you for continuing to be a part of this thriving, supportive, innovative and inspiring Library family. I look forward to seeing you in 2023!
