Karol Evans has come to think of the Eastwood Branch Library as a home away from home. Like her church, Bible Baptist, kind people gather there, she says. And where better to escape the Michigan winter doldrums than a cheerful place filled with adventure and friendly faces?
“I love mysteries and I love British authors,” says Karol, who confesses to reading four books at once. “The library is my family and the books are my entertainment.” She has come to know most of the staff by name. “I have a hoot talking to Barbara and Sam and Tammy and Doris and Jennifer. They love books and I love books. They’re so nice, they’ve spoiled me.”
