Saint Paul Public Library is Pretty Cool

The Saint Paul Public Library recently published two books in Karen, which I think is pretty cool. I was pretty ignorant of the Karen culture until the 2013-2014 school year when I served as a Minnesota Reading Corps tutor at a charter school in Saint Paul. The student population at my school was mostly Hmong and Karen immigrants and many had recently relocated to Minnesota.

According to the article, “St. Paul is home to the largest and fastest-growing Karen population in the U.S.”

Way to go Saint Paul Library system!
