Plaza Voices: "It's a Family Thing"

Hanako Ngalame comes many times each week to story times, craft times, and Plaza with her mom and siblings. She is growing up in the library, just like her brothers and sisters.

In the next picture you can see many of the sixteen people who participated in the pastel art workshop, presented by local artist Tony Ortega from the Art Students League of Denver.

You can also see people working on other projects. Three children were playing with our toys, and another two were making puzzles in the background. Four adults were working on computers, three of them looking for places to rent and one creating a resume. One man was getting help with the homework for his English class.

In Plaza, we’re here to help you meet your goals, whatever they might be.

In the following photo, Sandra Hernandez and her daughters Alexa and Laura in the front row. The Ngalame kids and Laurette Heppell in the back row.

In the final photo, you see Rocio and her kids, who have come to the library regularly for years. It’s a family thing.
