Lily Whiteman came to the
ice-cream party for kids in mid-September in our
Community Room. She's a fifth grader at
Salford Hills School, and she spent a lot of the summer
at the library -- participating in our summer-reading
programs and then borrowing lots of books to read at
home. She's also a concerned citizen.
In her "spare" time this summer,
Lily did lots of chores for her parents and
grandparents, chores around the house and yard that a
fifth-grader didn't have to do. They rewarded
her with some money, and she saved it. She saved
it -- and gave it to the library -- all $200 of
it. Lily knew that strong funding for the
library's future is a big issue this year.
And, she did her part, going way above and
beyond, to help out the library she
