For Erica Johanson and her four young children, who are customers of the Graham Pierce County Library, re-opening libraries helps them enjoy free early learning books and materials, books and movies to help reduce stress, and even spaces to connect with their community. Erica is thrilled the Library System has learning books for her children and she loves checking out movies to help manage the stress of raising and juggling four young boys!
“I just love bringing my boys to the library,” she said. “I’m so excited that they get to be back in the building. There’s something for each of them and so many different ways to engage and entertain them. I’m so grateful to keep growing their love for books!”
