Anne Johnson moved to the Twin Cities from Chicago three years ago. While she had friends here already, she says, “I needed something to…feel part of the community.” So, what did she do? She discovered Quatrefoil Library, our very own GLBT community library. “When I moved here, it was the first thing I joined,” she adds. Now, she is Board Secretary and Web Mistress (she prefers “Web commando”).
I’m visiting with Johnson and several leaders of Quatrefoil at its space on the lower level of a former school building just west of Snelling in St Paul. Even though it’s an extremely cold night, several volunteers are here, and plenty of people are coming in to browse the collection.
