” I’m so excited to be a part of Anaik’s Loving Library! Ever since I was around 3, I’ve loved to read and have always had a huge passion for it. In fact, my mom has always had to tell me to put down the book instead of pick it up! I believe that books are my escape from reality and I want every kid to have access to such a great experience. That’s why I felt inspired to start the Dallas Chapter! “
