"Growing up in Hawaii, I attended Punahou school from grades K through twelve.

The Whole She-Bang 3, 2017

"Librairies are a gateway in all communities -- but the doors they open are not to just access knowledge and the joy of reading. They are safe welcoming havens for the youngest to the oldest of readers, a place where they can sit and open the covers of a book that may take them places, comfort, excite or give them life-changing ideas. As a child, my local library was my favourite place, my safe haven, its books a lifeline to greater possibilities."

The happiest day I can remember was when, at nine years old, I heard the children's librarian hand me off to the adult librarian and tell her it was okay to let me check out whatever I wanted."
