Rainha's Story: Lyn Miller-Lachmann on the Importance of Reading and Libraries
Who knew that Lyn, a dynamic young adult author, lives in the neighborhood? And that she is also an extreme advocate for supporting and demanding increased and continued funding for libraries?
Who says nothing exciting ever happens at the info desk?
Lyn’s little lego story about Rainha and reading has warmed my heart and made me want to share it with you – so here’s RAINHA’S STORY.
NOW THAT’S A LESSON!!!
If the powers that be gave the libraries more money, Rainha would have went to the library more and never encountered this problem—to understand this more fully read Lyn’s accompanying article but warning it was a post from last week so it’s already obsolete—Instead of signing a petition, Lyn now suggests writing letters.
Catch the Lyn’s latest post—an unassuming tale about a governor and a rather crowded bridge.
Of course after meeting Lyn I couldn’t help but ask her about her latest book called Rogue—then I looked at it then and started reading it (here's a review). I must say so far it is fantastic—I’d let you read it after me—but I’ve already promised to lend it to a certain now crownless Queen first.
