My Library: Shan


So you are getting your first library card?


How long have you lived in the city?

I’ve lived in New York about 15 years.

How come you never got a card?

That’s a good question. I just never made the time for the better things in life!

Where are you originally from?

I’ve lived all over the United States –

Did you have library cards in other places?

In Pennsylvania I did and in college and high school.

So you used the card primarily for studying purposes?


What is your favorite book?

Hunger by Knut Hamsun.

So this is your first library card for fun!
