a patron i had helped with her 11th grade research paper (major requirement for VA schools) came in with a thank you note for me. she did her project on assistance animals, and i got her in touch with a friend/patron who is blind and has a guide dog.
she wrote on her note that she's thinking of being a librarian.
she only stopped in to give me the card. she exited the building, i opened the card, and i ran out the door after her so i could hug her.
