Story shared on my Facebook (where I have a librarian among my friends).
UPDATE: after I shared this link on my Facebook, my librarian friend said, "I've added this to a library news blog that I subscribe to." So now it's being shared on a news site for professional librarians. I think it'd be great if this story grows and the NE librarian gets some pro bono legal aid, publicity and a new job!
Thank you! What I'd really like to see happen is have busloads of literacy volunteers head out there in a sort of Freedom Riders plan to teach English to Spanish speakers. Even with budget cuts, my guess is larger libraries in the metro area would be delighted to hire her. I sure hope so. Thanks again.
BTW, back in Chelsea, Kayem used to offer english lessons to it's immigrant employees. A polish immigrant started the company and his appreciation of being given a chance has come down the line even to the grandkids who now run the company. So even though people who work there only knew "Sam Beckett" as a lead character of an early '90s TV series, they had their admirable qualities.
