I love people and reading has always been important to me. Just the thought of not being able to get to the library to get materials brought the thought “that could happen to me some day” and I knew that I wanted to and could help out—and I am glad that I am helping out.
Having a homebound couple in their 90’s has shown me that you can still be reading at that age and be pleasant to people–even with health issues–and they are so grateful for this service.
I talk to a lot of people who read or have elderly parents, and when I tell them of this service, they are surprised and have not heard of anything like this, and some say they are going to look into it at their library–so thank you Menomonee Falls Library!
