Today, we're hearing the stories of Laurinda Ross, the treasurer of our Friends of the Ferndale Library group. Ross is a lifetime library supporter and a lifetime supporter of local arts, whether it's here in Metro Detroit, or back in her native state of California, where she was an active attendee of live music events in the San Francisco Bay Area. Ross tells us all about California, the Berkeley CA Library, and especially about the sense of community she found when she joined the library's Friends group. We also talk about the ways in which libraries are inherently welcoming spaces for everyone, no matter what, as well as a welcoming and safe space for all ages. We also talk a good bit about baking!
