Anaelizabeth Blandón is a Nicaragua woman, born and raised in Granada, Nicaragua. She emigrated to the United States in search of better opportunities, becoming a librarian in the Los Angeles Public Library system. She asked to be assigned to the most Latino-heavy community possible so that she could help Latinos navigate and become proficient at the library system and reading. After she retired, she returned to live in Nicaragua and applied for the position of Director of Biblioteca Puedo Leer. For six years she has enjoyed supporting children in both the urban and rural areas with books and smiles. She aims to show the importance of reading to these children to help them move ahead in their lives, whatever field they would like to pursue.
