As a child, instead of begging to go to the park, or the beach, Kaitlyn wanted to go to the library. A shy child, she found the library helped her balance her love for reading and learning with a chance to interact with other children. As she grew, she became more outgoing and this year was named the Meredith 250th's Youth Ambassador. We are so proud of her and congratulate her on her many accomplishments, including being accepted to Dartmouth College to study biology. "The Meredith Public Library was my home away from home as a child, and I still love it dearly," says Kaitlyn. "It is a part of Meredith that will always stick with me."
