Many facets of daily life have been harshly affected by the spread of COVID-19. People are losing their jobs, most major countries have seen some form of strict stay at home order, and there has been a mass movement onto online communication platforms.

Today, we highlight a teen volunteer from the Porter Ranch Branch Library. We’d like to call Hannah Cha an all-around teen volunteer, that rare volunteer who considers shelving books therapeutic.

Humans are destroying the planet. We’re eviscerating our atmosphere with growing holes in the ozone and using the planet as our trash can with no awareness of the consequences. It can be overwhelming to think about. You may be thinking...“well, don’t blame me!” or “what can I do about it?”

My experience at the Mayor’s Youth Council was an interesting one. As a group, we focused on homelessness in Los Angeles. I was surprised to find out that there is a large number of homeless youth and some might even go to my school and other schools in my area.

My first day was overwhelming—meeting lots of new people who were all very welcoming, and learning about all the different departments and what each department does to help run the daily programs of the library.

High school is a place where many teens, like myself, have felt like popularity outshines the importance of school. Teens often believe that high school is some type of hierarchy like the films, High School Musical or Bring It On.
