A Message from Our President:

Esmeralda Casas

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

I am honored and excited to serve as president for Bibliotecas Para La Gente (2018-2019). BPLG fosters and develops services to Latinos and the Spanish speaking communities. Now is the time to work together to break barriers and provide a voice to the most vulnerable. 

A library advocate transforms lives, creates lifelong readers/learners and serves as an informational resource modeling opportunities of growth and leadership.

Bibliotecas Para La Gente welcomes new members and all individuals interested in library services. I am looking forward to meeting new members and working with all of you. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or concerns.  

I am grateful for the contributions of all the active members and for the mentoring I have received. Thank you for giving of your time and energy. 

My favorite Cesar Chavez quote is “Our language is the reflection of ourselves. A language is an exact reflection of the character and growth of its speakers”.
