Around My Block tells the story of everyday New Yorkers making last impacts - big and small - in their community. We're starting off with stories about the Bronx. With Around My Block, WFUV News wants to highlight the beauty of our borough.

First up: Roseanna Gulisano.

Her block is the library at PS 11 in Highbridge. In the bright green and cozy library of the school she fills hearts and minds through literacy and donation programs that extend beyond the four walls of her classroom.
