    Cynthia Worden must be an amazing girl! To admit that your not perfect, especially as a teenager, is a very big risk.

    Lisa- Thanks so much for commenting. Cynthia is indeed amazing, and we’re so grateful she volunteered to tell her story. The stories behind why people use the library are so vast and varied, and we think they’re important to tell.
