As an empty-nester and divorced, Judee moved to the Triangle area because of the medical care in the area; she was a cancer patient in remission. She knew no one and was unemployed.

After signing her mortgage on a new condo, she immediately went to the North Regional Library for a library membership. On a visit there, she connected with and joined a library-sponsored bookclub.

She made friends with several members of the bookclub, got a lead for employment and is now working as a recruiter in the graduate school of management at NCSU.

She remains cancer-free and is employed in a position she loves. She occasionally leads the discussion at bookclub. Wake County Public Libraries creates community.
