Denzel Washington Reunites with his Childhood Librarian For her 99th Birthday; She Gives him Handmade Scarves In Return

A photo posted on Imgur Thursday (pictured) shows the woman next to Hollywood legend Denzel Washington. The librarian is beaming and both have handmade scarves around their necks. The person who published the photo said in the caption it showed her grandmother, a 99-year-old former librarian from Mount Vernon, next to Washington, whom she had always remembered fondly. Several people had tried to contact Washington to arrange a meetup, to no avail, the poster wrote. But the librarian finally got to talk to him on the phone on her 99th birthday, and the two finally made plans for a reunion. 'She ALWAYS tells the story of how she gave Denzel Washington his first library card and how she remembers him for his unique name "and he was the cutest thing," ' the poster wrote.
