    Nunamo aids Aurora library in reaching out with resources

    Now more than a year into his role as a library assistant at the central branch in Aurora, Nunamo is leveraging his familiarity with the city’s burgeoning Ethiopian community to make sure the library is publicized as the valuable immigrant resource it is. Specifically, he’s started teaching one-on-one tutorials on various computer skills in Amharic, the official language of Ethiopia. The idea is to make the library’s myriad resources more available — and comprehensible — to a demographic that may not know what the facility offers.
