Photo of Yadira from Kids & Teens.Yadira has been a Kids & Teens Associate since November 2015. After majoring in history she was unsure of what to do next, but with a love of books and learning, libraries seemed like the right place.

Among her favorite pastimes are doing arts and crafts, baking, trying out new restaurants with friends, drinking coffee, and of course, reading.
