Get to Know: Perla Lara

Perla is a Library Services Representative at Plano Public Library, working at Harrington Library. Check out our interview with Perla to learn more about what she does at the library, and her favorite way to help the community.

One of my favorite ways to help our community is using my Spanish language skills to help create library content for Spanish speakers so that more of our community is aware of what we can offer.

Perla uses her Spanish knowledge in combination with technical skills to create video captions in Spanish on the library’s YouTube channel and translate existing information, like signs and handouts. According to the Census, almost 12 percent of the Plano population speaks Spanish at home with a large population of Spanish-speakers in the East Plano area, which includes Harrington Library. Because of this, you can find collections of books and movies in Spanish for kids and adults at Harrington Library.
