Libraries have a wealth of resources, both print and electronic -- but they can also be a key social and cultural resource. Following the major renovation of the Broad Rock branch of Richmond Public Libraries, Branch Manager Cristina Ramirez has worked to increase the number of Latino-specific services provided to the diverse southside neighborhood. Broad Rock offers homework help and computer classes in both English and Spanish (and is currently developing a Spanish GED program). She's helped the library become a family-friendly community center that provides access to more than books -- for example, the Latino La Plaza Farmers' Market takes place (seasonally) effectively in the library's backyard.
