After I read "What Pet Should I Get?" for Read Across America Day, I presented $10,968.52 to support D6 libraries in the City of San Diego. Public libraries are the backbone to a neighborhood. At our libraries, new parents connect at infant story-times, school-based youth have a safe place to study, adults receive a second chance to earn a high school diploma, and our seniors attend classes to interact with one another. When we invest in our libraries, we invigorate our communities. ‪#‎ReadAcrossAmericaDay
