"I still have the medals and I remember the pride I felt every time I looked at them. "
When I first came to Surrey, I was around 7 or 8 years old. Some of my fondest memories as a child were in the library. I would take out stacks of books and I remember taking out DVD movies when they used to be a thing. I always signed up for programs and the library just felt like a homey place to be. I always remember doing the summer reading programs and I took them so seriously. I still have the medals and I remember the pride I felt every time I looked at them. Reading was a way for me to leave this world and enter a place where anything is possible.
