I enjoy the people I meet every day at work. I’ve been in the same branch for 28 years and have seen the children that I used to have in story time as three year-olds grow up and become parents, bringing their own children back. It’s like a community, like a family.
I enjoy making even a small difference in somebody’s life whether it’s finding a book they want and sending them home happy, or finding information that they need.
I live here in the community and often run into somebody I’ve seen in the library. We can talk about something in common, because of books. Our library creates a common thread that unites the community. To me, it’s like the heart of Qualicum.
