Being apart of a group of people excited to give back to the Arlington Public Library is always a great experience. Growing up, I would beg my mom to take me to the library to read everything I could possibly get my hands on. The library was and is a very important part of my life. By volunteering with the Friends of the Arlington Public Library, I feel like I am able to give back to what is important- the kids of the future.
