|Librarians provide programs for children
living in encampments in Petit Goave.
Maria, one of the librarians at Central Library, told us an excellent story about an Arlington teen and summer reading:
A young teen girl came to the desk looking for a couple of specific titles. I helped her and got her the books. I told her about Teen Get Caught Reading and explained that if she signed up, she could possibly winning $100 or other gift cards.
Then I told her about helping Haiti. Her reply was: “So I will be a winner just by participating.”
She was so sincere and happy that she would be helping Haiti just by doing her reading for school and pleasure. It was a nice experience for me as a librarian to see.
We think Arlington teens are pretty awesome.
