Birthday Wishes for Ben

It seems that more than 200 years after his death, Library Company Founder Benjamin Franklin still captures the imagination of the ladies—or the girls anyway. Shortly after his January 17 birthday this year, we received a heartfelt and hand-drawn card from Lily West of Portland Oregon. 
Lily writes that Ben Franklin is “by FAR” her and her father’s favorite Founding Father. Her card is illustrated with pictures of some of Franklin’s most notable inventions and associations, including the lightning rod, bifocals, paper money, and postage stamps. The budding historian is pictured below in a Library Company T-shirt.
