Audra K.

Audra K.When I was very young, my mother used to take my little brother and I to our local library where she would read ‘books for the blind’ while we wandered the stacks. I have loved books ever since.

My tastes are eclectic - a library is a perfect fit for an indecisive individual like me. One day I might choose a biography about a World War II veteran (which my father was) and on another day I’ll choose a work of fiction that I have, I admit, chosen just because I like the cover. 

Whatever my choice​ I always hope to learn something.
