To celebrate National Library Week (April 14-April 19), we roamed all over Parchment and filmed people reading the children's book "The Library" by West Michigan's own SARAH STEWART and DAVID SMALL. This proves that Parchment is full of very good sports and great readers! Our thanks to the 64 awesome people who participated.
