Mirabel Horton didn’t want the latest gadget or expensive toy for her 4th birthday. Instead, she wanted to give to others.

A frequent customer at the Parkway Central Children’s Department, Mirabel loves the Library. Her parents, Alicia and Todd, have been teaching their daughter about sharing and giving, and when Mirabel got the chance to give back, she did. On her birthday, she didn’t ask for gifts from friends and family. Instead, Mirabel suggested that her loved ones give a little something to the Free Library.

In total, she collected $200 for the Children’s Department! With a little birthday card, Mirabel presented the money to the Free Library President and Director, Siobhan A. Reardon. We are honored by her selfless donation and proud to have such a thoughtful young donor. Thank you, Mirabel!
