“Carol Sue Snowden, a librarian at the Columbus Metropolitan Library, was known by her peers for her modest lifestyle. She drove a used Chevrolet, lived in a condominium, and was happy to indulge in little other than her passion for books. It was precisely because of this frugal lifestyle that she was able to accomplish something monumental: She’d saved over $1 million, donating all of it to libraries and reading programs she’d come to love.” (via Huffington Post)
