Hannah did the adult programming at the Lambertville Free Public Library when I first moved to the LBV, and that meant that, simply by her role, she was bound play a part in making me feel welcome in town—I *heart* public libraries so hard. That said, Hannah went above and beyond in a multitude of ways, not the least of which through something she has little control over and which makes me so happy every time I hear it: her very musical laugh. This is a trait she shares with our fellow library lover, Sonya. When the two of them work up a giggle together, all is right with the world.
