Patron of the Day

Today's award goes to the man a little older than I am who wanted information about how to teach someone autistic to count money. "He's my neighbor. I hear his dad yelling at him all the time. He just doesn't get it. You've got to have patience. I already taught him how to tell time, so that's good, but when I took him to the grocery store yesterday he gave the cashier $40.32 instead of $14.32. I was thinking I could buy some of that fake Monopoly money and we could practice with that."

So nice!


  1. That's a pretty nice story to tell people who say we don't need our public libraries anymore.

  2. Aww that's a really nice neighbor! Hopefully the student is being taught this at school!

    1. Apparently he is in his early 20s, so I fear he might have aged out of education programs :(
