We had a very special visitor to the La Porte Community Library Wednesday. Her name is Dong Yushan and she is one of the students from China who are visiting La Porte for a week. This is part of an exchange program between LPISD and Yushan's school Nankai High School. Yushan is interested in becoming a librarian so she spent the afternoon with us learning what goes on in an American library. She asked many thoughtful questions and was particularly interested that all the library services are free. We truly enjoyed Yushan's visit and wish her well on her career path.
