A letter from Rosana Perez, home school mom
Dear Moores Memorial Library,
The present is to let you know how much Moores Memorial Library means to our family and how much I personally appreciate the great job you and your staff do.
Your library has made my job as a home school mom so much easier and fun. I know I am going to fall short on my list for it would take too much time and recollection to describe it all. However this is what comes to mind at the moment:
- The whole family, except for me, who has been an avid reader all my life, has come to enjoy great literature by being introduced to audio books, read by lively readers. We enjoy both, the Play Away, for the personalized reading, and the CDs. Even my husband, who has never been a great reader, has been devouring books since he discovered audio books.
- It is hard to measure the impact that having unlimited access to books has, for recreational purpose, as well as academic, teaching, parenting, and personal growth.
- The summer programs were not only informative but inspiring and enjoyable learning, as much for my children as for me as a facilitator.
- I cannot properly describe my sentiments when I witness my kids feeling at home and happy at the library. I still remember my first encounters with free libraries, in my mid twenties, having been an avid and very limited reader (book wise). I realize that my kids will never come to appreciate libraries the same way I do. More mesmerizing is observing their excitement when informed of a visit to the Moores Memorial Library. MML has this cheerful, welcoming ambiance that makes you want to be there. I strongly believe that these childhood experiences filled with good, unnoticed, emotions will mark their lives.
- The free field trips to the Lancaster county museums and other sites allow us to make school field trips that would not be able to afford otherwise.
Again, the list falls short. The borderline is how grateful and appreciative I am to all who make this possible.
Thank you again for all you do,
