All of us at the library could not be prouder of Graciela Rivera for being selected by Southside Institution Neighborhood Alliance’s REACH Committee to receive the 2021 Neighborhood Service Award. 

"When I moved to Hartford the Library offered me a welcoming space with access to many resources. To me, and I hope to others too, our library is a beacon of hope and I believe the new Park Library will be a catalyst for change in the neighborhood.”
