Our library theme is "Where will my book take me today?" Maybe we don't like to be told what to do, or why things are the way they are, but books can reveal many things to us through their words and pictures. Andrea Merrell enjoys reading books to elementary students, hikes, her own two children, Pound/yoga, warm sunshiny days, and creating. Personal message - "I hope students everywhere learn to love reading!"
