How did you come to love reading and libraries?

I grew up in the Medina Library (the old building) and remember browsing the shelves after school and during the summer. I absolutely loved getting lost in another world or another time. I enjoyed reading Arthur and Berenstain Bears picture books, Baby-Sitters Club, Sweet Valley Twins, and American Girl novels.

Part of my bond with my grandma came from reading our books side by side on our front porch at our cottage at Lakeside. Later in life, I found joy in bringing her books that I just knew she would love. When she passed away last August, the first book I read in her memory was The Word Is Murder by Anthony Horowitz, because I knew she would have loved it.   

What is your very favorite kind of book to read, and why?

As my life has changed over the last couple of years, my reading tastes have shifted. In addition to historical fiction and women’s contemporary fiction, I’m reading books about being a mom, parenting, and coping with grief.

What's the best "Mom Power" book you've read lately?
