Super grateful for librarians and the safe-spaces they provide allowing one to open up our imaginations with books and activities. Shout out to Roxbury library branch!
Librarians here are so engaged with their communities. My favorite library memory is being at the Roxbury branch reopening and librarians cheering when people signed up for their first cards!
Daniela is such a treasure to have for our teens . Having a welcoming and truly interested adult who wants the world to be a better place for young people is fantastic. Boston is blessed

Someone in my local facebook group was wanting to join a book club and many others agreed-- & one of my branch's librarians started a new book club for them! What an amazing way to build community.
