Once A Librarian...

This week in First Light's look around the state…we have this story from Illinois Public Radio’s Laura Kennedy. Once a librarian, always a librarian.  That's how it is for Dorothy Kennett, a media librarian who, after retiring from Illinois State University, found a second calling, helping children thousands of miles from her central Illinois home
