Weight lifting and coaching when not at work! 🏀🏋🏽‍♀️ Favorite quote? “Supporting the truth, even when it is unpopular, shows the capacity for honesty and integrity.” -unknown

Our #wcw goes out to Zora Neale Hurston. She was a writer and anthropologist, who was a fixture of the Harlem Renaissance and author of the masterwork ‘Their Eyes Were Watching God.’ (1891-1960) She once said, “ Research is formalized curiosity. It is poking with a purpose.” Swipe Right to see some a few of her outstanding works.📚

New Hanover County Public Library donated 550 BOXES of children’s books to our NHC Schools!

Everyone meet Savannah, she is a Library assistant at Main. We asked her a few questions today! Scroll through and see! 👇🏼👉🏼Swipe to also see a piece of art she made from her hobby! What’s your favorite book? 📚 The Phantom Tollbooth, by Norton Juster Do you have a favorite hobby? Paper quilling What about a favorite quote? “To laugh often and much; To win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; To earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; To appreciate beauty, to find the best in others; To leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or a redeemed social condition; To know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded. “ – Ralph Waldo Emerson #nhclibrary #meetthestaff #workerwednesday
