The first and second place entries were only separated by one vote, so the Friends of the Homewood Library provided another $25 for a second place prize. The $50 prize for First Place went to Abbie D. The Second Place prize went to Lee Ann S. Library Director, Deborah Fout said, “The stories are wonderful and really validate the work we do at Homewood Library. The staff and I know how libraries can change lives, but to hear it expressed so beautifully by our patrons really touches us.”
We have included just a sampling of the stories here for you to read.
More of the stories will be highlighted in our gallery during National Library Week, April 8-14.
