LizzLoves Natsuko Garcia October 6, 2010

I was perusing the WNYC Radio website yesterday when I came across their section “Know Your Neighbor” which featured the story of an amazing young Japanese woman in Brooklyn, NY named Natsuko Garcia. When Natsuko discovered that the children in her Japanese community in Bay Ridge didn’t have access to books in their native language, she decided to build that resource for them: in her one-bedroom apartment. Natsuko has opened her home-turned-library to little bookworms in her neighborhood. Watch the video for a tour of the homemade library and its pint-sized fans.

Thanks, Natsuko, for enriching our youth with culture and education!
