This month, we were happy to sit down with a beloved library patron, Erika Wyatt. Erika is not only a language teacher within the county school system, but she also teaches a free language class at the main library. She also happens to be born and raised in Bogota, Columbia - immigrating here with her immediate family on the cusp of her 20s. She graciously accepted our request to be a "living library book" and shared her experience of immigration through our five questions.
