« Franz Kafka, 3 July 1883- 3 June 1924 | Main | Reb Livingston Presents a Poem by Rebecca Loudon »

July 03, 2010


I've tutored adult ESL in Irvine for about14 years and I'm certain I've learned as much from my "students" as they have learned from me! This is a city rich in diversity (except in residential architecture).

Also--love the banner! Looks like 4th graders made it. ;^D

THis is a moving and inspiring post. Public libraries really are among the most wonderful institutions we have. Thank you for reminding me why.

This is great, Stephanie, and especially the enthusiasm for sharing that is engendered there.

Fabulous article for the eve of the 4th of July. The public library is among the most democratic spaces in America. Thank you for sharing your librarian's perspective, Stephanie

The free public library is America; we are its products one and all.

This post brings up so many good points about what our libraries provide for new immigrants. I wish the powers that be would consider these services more before they cut funding for libraries.

Look around at our libraries. People from all over the world sharing the experience of the library, everyone is getting along. Great piece Stephaine.
