A parent in Mott Haven, the Bronx

I’m prideful that a library is in my community and the people are coming in and using it. It is our neighborhood community center. It keeps us socially connected. The neighborhood is a bit rough so coming to this library is my opportunity to escape some of the day to day drama. It brings people together from all walks of life in one space to enjoy programs, to learn, and to just escape from daily challenges of poverty, drugs, gun violence, and gangs.
