Summer is a great time to challenge yourself to set a reading example.
The Warsaw Public Library has received a selection of books through the We The People Bookshelf program. The theme for the collection this year is “Created Equal.”
Challenge yourself to read some of these books. Better yet, invite a young person to read one with you. Share your thoughts on how we are equal.
