Jennifer FreedMy first grade teacher said on my report card "Jennifer loves to read". I still have that report card and see that teacher Miss Jean Peterson now and again. She remembered me!! 

I am getting ready to start a book that I am reading for my local book club. It is called The Light Between the Oceans by M. L. Stedman. It takes place in Australia. A young couple, who are lighthouse keepers, unable to have children, discover a boat washed ashore carrying a dead man and a living baby. They struggle with the decision to keep this "gift from god".

I am currently the branch manager at the Centre County Library in Bellefonte. I managed the Kish (Belleville) branch of the Mifflin County Library for 5 years prior.

Encouraging the love of reading to your children is one of  THE most important things you can do as a parent.
