Reading certainly feeds your child's brain, so has your child has his/her serving of (pie) reading aloud today?
I have lived in Martin for 5.5 years and have certainly seen Weldon Library transform...they have a Facebook page, they facilitate painting events, support children events, and are certainly making a difference engaging the community.

*NOTE: The city is currently raising funds to build a new library. In their words,
"Imagine opening the doors to a 21st century library that will connect a lively community to downtown and become the heart of Martin."
The city has secured $5.5 million dollars through a USDA-Rural Development loan and established the Martin Public Library Foundation to raise the remaining $1.5M from private donors. To date individuals and companies in the community have pledged over $949K to the library. They are nearly $550K away from being fully funded.
