CHILLIN’  While scrolling through her twitter feed, freshman Kasey Yean waits in the library after school until 3:20 to walk over to her mom’s work at Granite Bay Montessori.

Ms. Julia Hedstrom, the librarian, is also very kind. It’s a comfortable place to be,” Yean said. Photo by Selena De La Torre
