* Amelia's story:  "Carol Briggs, a very kind and thoughtful youth services librarian, and leader of a virtual Writer Workshop for 12-15-year-olds, wrote to thank Marco Island Writers. One of her writers, Amelia, enjoys and uses the resources we offer on our website. To reciprocate Amelia provided a resource of her own.  Good for you Amelia! Keep writing.
