Natsuko, The Home Librarian

Monday, October 04, 2010

When Natsuko Garcia moved to Bay Ridge, Brooklyn, she realized that the dozens of Japanese families that had recently settled there could really use a children's library. So she decided to build one—in her living room.

"We have so many Japanese kids in this neighborhood, and they don't have enough Japanese books to read," Garcia says. "So, they come here to borrow books from me."

It's nice to see Natsuko, the librarian and her little clients, children's glowing, beautiful facial expressions.
Thank you very much for providing such a wonderful space.
