Discovering Gaston

“I grew up in Santa Cruz, Bolivia. We never had a public library. My children are extremely lucky to have the Carmel Public Library. As a parent my heart soars with pride as I think of my 4 year old naming his pet, after a book he fell in love with during one of his library visits.”
—Gleidy Wetzel, Mother of three, Grateful Patron
