Daniella, a student in Brooklyn

The Sheepshead Bay Library is one of my favorite places to go to. I call it: My Second Home. I always feel welcome here and everybody respects everyone, especially us children. There are so many fun programs, so I forget about getting bored here. I am 11 now and am participating in library book discussions, poetry workshops, arts and crafts, talent shows, and sidewalk chalk art competitions. The library made me love reading and art.
