CYPRESS CREEK FRIENDS OF THE LIBRARY
February 14, 2011

I stopped working three years ago. I was lost for what to do with myself. Then, I read my local community paper and saw an announcement for a book club meeting at the BB library. I was excited. i have never been in a book club before. I love to read and be around people, especially to discuss books! When, I attended my first meeting, I was made to feel right at home. It really made a newly lost person feel found. I felt hope for the first time that maybe I would be okay without a career to define me. I have met some brilliant ladies and gents in my group. I look forward to our meeting every month. They have interesting stories and come from all kinds of backgrounds that keep me engaged and inspired. I feel like I am given an injection of motivation every time I go there. It is a very special time for me. I am very grateful that I found it, made new friends, read many wonderful books, and been involved in so many rejuvenating discussions. It motivated me to join two more off campus book clubs!
