The Impact of Your Gift

Trina grew up in the projects and often made the 30-minute trek to the Parkway Central Library while being chased by bullies. She sought out the Library as a safe haven and depended on it to satisfy her youthful curiosity through programs and books. Today, Trina is an administrator of a health center and oversees the entire staff of doctors and nurses, and she credits the Library as helping her become successful in life.
