A few weeks ago I was sent out to Selkirk regarding a story about the new library that was just built, the Gaynor Family Regional Library. It's probably the nicest library I have ever been in. It was more like a really nice, very large bookstore.
There was a cafe!
I had to take our tour guide, Colleen Sklar, the volunteer chairwoman of the library aside so I could shoot a portrait and have a small chat with her.
I asked her what the biggest challenge was for her during the project to have the library built.
"The hardest thing in any project is people trusting, having trust and having faith in their partners. That to me is key. We have to learn to share, we were taught to share when we were little kids and I think we have to understand that going into a project with an open hand and trusting is our only way forward. You can't receive unless your hands are open."
