 “I want to give a joyful shoutout to the Georgetown Library. Not only do they have a service that delivers a bag of books monthly to my dad (who lives in a senior’s building on Durham St.), they also have a “wellness check” phone call to him on occasion. What a wonderful service-oriented facility. Thanks from the bottom of my heart.~ Linda
