Last year, we met 9-year-old West Seattle resident Halima, who detailed how she became a star student with aspirations to become a doctor by using Homework Help at the High Point branch. Watch her story here.

Keynote speaker Franklin, 18, recounted how he moved to Seattle from Nigeria and not only learned English at the Library, but picked up coding skills that inspired him to pursue a career in computer science after just 3 ½ years in the United States. Check out Franklin’s speech.
