LOGAN HEIGHTS — Where Elia Abendano grew up in Oaxaca, Mexico, books were a rare commodity and the closest high school was 15 miles away.
“It was impossible to read, to get an education, a formal education,” she said.
When she was in her 20s, she moved to Logan Heights where she discovered the library.
“There was so much to read,” she said. “And it was all free.”
