My son and I drove about an hour north so that we could see the total eclipse. It was one of the most amazing moments of my life. Totally worth the drive and the about 60 mosquito bites!

She comes into the library regularly, wearing a sassy cowboy hat and a million dollar smile. A few weeks shy of her 92nd birthday, she checks out books on understanding the Koran and artificial intelligence because it’s “important to learn about things like that.” And Little House on the Prairie, because “sometimes the news just gets to be a bit much, doesn’t it?” I love that woman. Honestly, just seeing her come up to the front door of the library makes my day a little bit better. It’s who I would like to grow up to be.
