When Rich Jean wanted to help his daughter, Abigail, learn to read, he took her to the library near their home in Brooklyn, N.Y.
That's where they met Hasina Islam, who Jean says fostered a love of reading and the library in his daughter.
"You see what you started? You see that spark that you put in this child?" Jean told Islam at StoryCorps in 2016. At the time, Abigail was 7 and Islam was 27. Their friendship had begun four years prior, when Abigail was 3 and Islam was an intern at the library.
