Check Out Jolina Petersheim’s Essay in Reader’s Digest!

Jolina Petersheim

Hello, friends,

I won’t take up your Sunday morning (especially now that we’ve had the time change and need double espresso shots in our coffee!), but I would love if you’d swing by Reader’s Digest and read my essay, “Lady of the Library,” about the librarian who changed my life by encouraging my love for reading.

I have always had a special place in my heart for libraries, since they provided me with the ability to read more books than I could have ever afforded as a child. I want my daughter to have the same opportunity growing up, so let’s support libraries today!

Blessings to you all!

Jolina

    How wonderful, Jolina! I loved going to the library with my mom when I was a little girl. In fact, i used to tell people I wanted to be a librarian when I grew up. I didn’t, of course, but i still love going to the library and being around all those books!

    Congrats, Jolina! Cool, not just a byline, but your pic as well! Woohoo! So happy for you! I used to devour Readers Digest.

    And I love the story, especially the “elbows and knees” and “flaming face.” Can so picture it. Maybe even the librarian:)
