It Turns Out a Little Can Mean a Lot
We invited readers to share their Little Free Libraries story—how they got started, what inspired them and what makes their homespun book exchanges so special.
Starting on page 12, what unfolds are personal photos and stories, threaded together by a love of books and the power of sharing.
Not to give too much away, but you’ll find a clear sense of community, from voids filled to memories honored. You’ll also learn where to find a Little Free Library in your neighborhood or how to start your own. It’s not too late to share online. See the reader box on page 12 for details.
Here Comes the Tooth Taxi
The latest installment of The Changing Face of Rural Health Care, on pages 10 and 11, is just what the dentist ordered. It looks at how a traveling Tooth Taxi—a clinic on wheels—delivers free dental care to schoolchildren in need. The 76,000 miles traveled have put a smile on many faces.
For the Record
Washington State University’s Elson S. Floyd College of Medicine is one of two medical schools in Washington. The other is the University of Washington School of Medicine. March’s health care article, “No Doctor in the House,” said the UW program was the only medical school in Washington. WSU’s medical school, accredited in 2016, opened to draw more doctors to Eastern Washington and less served communities.
