The Great Neighborhood Library


Today was a small workshop at the Lehigh (Lillian Marrero branch) library. At first very shy, and hesitant, the 2 participant sisters, Aryam and Jemalix watched a few examples, and talked about their interest in the library. I mentioned how crucial it is for young people to express their appreciation for libraries given the mayor’s past threats to cut library funding. So, we decided to do a short interview piece, and they came up with questions. Although Aryam and Jemalix no longer live in the neighborhood, they keep coming to this library because it’s like a second home to them. Having seen many libraries myself through the course of this project, this is the most beautiful for sure! It’s over 100 years old and the inside is magnificent- and deserving of the name ‘the great neighborhood library!’
