Lia Kahn had everything. She was a popular socialite and everyone followed her vids to see what she and her friends were wearing, saying, or even eating that day.

Southeast Library

On Dec. 8, 1922, the Southeast Library was open to the public. Although it was only the second neighborhood library to be built, it was busy from the start. With an opening day collection of more than 5,000 titles and 75 periodicals, people flocked to the library, and demand for children's books was particularly high.
