“Everything you need for a better future and success has already been written.  And guess what? All you have to do is go to the library.”  ~ Henri Frederic Amiel

As the Sunnyside Library Manager, I’m excited to share our selection of books, films, music, audiobooks, as well as internet access, with YOU, very soon.

I’ve been hired to share my experience with the SW La Plata Library District, collaborating with 9-R schools, other libraries and the community “to inspire our residents of all ages to read, explore, ask and discover.”

Please contact me anytime with your questions, I also welcome your ideas for our community library!

Happy Reading,
