PPL Alum Carmen Larios

PPL is not just a library, it's a door for opportunities. After first taking basic online computer classes and then after given a chance to volunteer, I eventually was hired by the Library. PPL gave me that chance, that start that I needed to change not just my life, my work style, but to change peoples' lives.
