Late last month, we were lucky enough to have Kel Karpinski, a Library Science student located in Chicago, come to Portland to work at our Community Lending Library for the week. She helped us catalog a whole bunch of books (thanks to all of you who have been sending book donations lately!) and created a list of books that we need to bring into our library in order to provide a more comprehensive selection of books written by and for Latina and Latin American women. Before she left us, we asked her if she'd like to share her passion for librarianship as well as some of her favorite books with our readers. Fortunately, she said yes.
