Annette Blanchette, a local woman known as the "Story Lady" for all the volunteer reading she does, fell in love with the Reverie Harp. A group of her biggest fans bought one for her, but it wasn't easy making the gift a surprise. Photo courtesy of Jens Gunelson

People all over town know her as the "Story Lady." Annette Blanchette reads to kids and the elderly, bringing books and treats, wearing costumes and making story time special.

Angela Kaiser has worked at the university preschool for 21 years and said about Blanchette, "She was our story lady as long as I can remember."
