Library’s Project Read Staff Member Highlighted in the Almanac

Posted on September 21, 2014 at 12:11 am by Clay Curtin

Elibet Jimenez is a literacy specialist with the library’s adult literacy program, Project Read-Menlo Park. A recent Almanac article about Elibet, and her journey from Yale University to Project Read, highlights the importance of the library, especially the Belle Haven Branch, in her education and development. Elibet’s desire has been to give back to the community where she was raised and the literacy program where her parents improved their English language skills was a natural choice. Elibet has been with the library for almost two years and we are sorry to have to say goodbye to her this week.  She has accepted a position at 18 Reasons, a San Francisco-based non-profit that provides hands-on food experiences to all Bay Area residents.  At 18 Reasons she will be fulfilling her goal of helping the community by teaching the value of good nutrition and healthy lifestyles.
