We asked our Saturday Keynote Speaker, Kamau Ware, about his first library memory. Here's what he said: "When I first walked into a library in my Wilkinsburg neighborhood, it felt too good to be true that I could borrow books and return them. My mother who was a Head Start teacher, instructed me and my older sister how to get our library cards so we could access the books. It was my first grown up experience, completing paperwork, signing my name, and being accountable to an institution that wasn’t home or church." Learn how Ware is breaking down walls with his work on Saturday, November 10 at 9:00 am. #WhyCLA18 #NoBarriersNoWalls #AccessForAll #LibrariesOfInstagram #CAlibraries
