89-year-old librarian spreads passion for books


Great grandparents love telling stories about treks to one-room school houses on 20-below mornings.

At age 89, Ruth Boldan is still a volunteer librarian at the under-heated, over-stuffed 1890s school house that is now home to the Hazel Dell Library.
