Vote yes on Seattle Proposition 1 to support libraries

“It’s no exaggeration to say that a library saved my life. As a child seeking refuge from a difficult family, I found solace at the Parkman Branch Library in Detroit, thanks to a children’s librarian named Miss Frances Whitehead. Through the books she shared with me, and the kindness she showed, she opened my world well beyond the world that I knew. By the time I was 10 years old, I knew I wanted to be a librarian when I grew up, so that I could do for other people what Miss Whitehead did for me: Inspire them with books that would feed their souls, help them satisfy their curiosity about whatever interested them and make the world a better place.”
