“If you walk into any library on any afternoon, you’ll see seniors sitting and reading,” says Donna. “But it’s not just about reading – it’s social too. Libraries give us a place to meet.”

Since her retirement, Donna has become even more involved with the library through volunteering with Friends of the VPL and leading a play-reading group. Donna knows first-hand how important library spaces, collections and programs are for seniors. The library provides a place to connect and socialize.
