A few semesters ago, my professor assigned us an oral history project to do on a family member or someone we knew. I didn’t ask to be the family historian; but with my education, writing skills, and tech-savvy nature, I’m the perfect one for the job.
One of the best books I received was a 1937 edition of Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea and a 1950 edition of Leaves of Grass. Can you believe that someone was going to throw these books away in the trash? It’s heartbreaking, to say the least.
When I started my mobile library, I never thought it would get so big so fast. It’s hard to fathom what 500 books even looks like, and luckily I took a picture.
Several people have asked me why I’m doing this, and my answer is simple: I love books, I love free stuff, and I love giving away free books. I want to make sure that no one ever has an excuse not to be reading.
As many of you know, I’m studying to be a librarian and I run my own mobile library. Being able to go to this convention was a dream come true. All I did was spend a couple of hours volunteering.
I started my mobile library with $5 and 5 books, and it’s been very successful so far. We are thankful for the support and donations we have received.
I hadn’t been on stage in 10 years before this play, but it felt good to be on stage again after being gone for so long.
