“My name is Christopher Sandford; I am sixteen years old and a rising 11th grader. I enjoy working with technology, watching football, reading fiction novels, and playing basketball. Ever since I was little, I have enjoyed going to the library. First, it was attending story time, then it was checking out exciting books, and now I volunteer at the May Memorial Library every Thursday.”

The library is a special place and has captivated the minds of people young and old. I have enjoyed the library for as long as I can remember. First, I enjoyed children’s story time, then I read books for pleasure reading, and now I use the library to gather research for school papers. I also have been volunteering for almost a year.” Chris Sandford, 2016
