I don’t really feel like working right now. Oh! You’ll sing with me? Okay, I guess I’ll help.

Maxi McGraw was born one sunny day in East Irondequoit in Rochester, New York. From the day Maxi was born, her mother and father brought her to the children story hours at Helen McGraw Branch.
She loved books and every night her mom and dad read to her, from the children books they borrowed from Maxi’s local library.
When Maxi turned 5 years old she was very excited that she could get her first library card. And every day from that moment on, Maxi checked out as many children’s books as possible.
When Maxi turned 17 years old, she applied to work in her local library as Library Page and then Library Clerk because Maxi loves the library so much.
After finishing High School, Maxi went to Library School and she became a Librarian. Maxi graduated in the top of her class, becoming best of the best. All of that hard work that she did and those books that Maxi read helped her become the greatest person and librarian.
Now Maxi helps out and teaches many other children that come through those doors where she got her heart started with books back home in her local Helen McGraw Branch. Working also with her great co-workers as well, answering and helping other patron’s questions.
Now Maxi also is teaching the children about how the Library is important and how well they need to keep it and enjoy it every day and pass it on to their children and grandchildren when they grow up and have families of their own.
