Volunteer of the Month – January

Christopher LeGrove

We are delighted to announce our volunteer of the month for January 2021: Christopher!
Here’s a message from him: I’ve been having so much fun reading for these past months. Reading for someone is such a joy; transmitting stories to children has been a human tradition since time immemorial, and carrying on that tradition is an honor and a privilege. Being able to read and write remains a concern worldwide, so being part of a solution is surely important. I wanted to take this opportunity to thank for welcoming me into the fold so that I can contribute what I have to offer. I am, of course, looking forward to reading in front of something other than my camera! Entertaining people is my profession, and I joined up in part for this. Luckily technology offered an answer to not being able to read in public places during COVID-19, for which I am grateful. We’ve all had to practice adaptability, and having the right tools helps.

Kyarra Ross Dalton

We are happy to announce our Volunteer of the Month for November Kyarra Ross Dalton! Here is a message from Kyarra: “It has been so much fun volunteering for ! When I started I didn’t know how much I would enjoy reading and making videos, but as the weeks went on I took on more and more books. I am so touched that the kids enjoy the videos just as much as I do. It’s so important, especially with these times that there’s a way to keep positivity and I think gives this opportunity. It’s beautiful to be able to share a story. I hope to be able to read to kids in person when it is possible and safe. But for now I look forward to sharing stories that I hope everyone will enjoy just as much as I do.

Nesrine Benchoubane

We are happy to announce our Volunteer of the Month for October Nesrine Benchoubane! Here is a message from Nesrine: “There is so much going on between the cover of a book. It rains peas and mashed potatoes. It is chasing wizards and witches or pirates or ROBOTS ! But, there is also compassion, love and kindness engraved in small actions or little looks that we portray in our minds. That is why I’m so thankful to because at the end of the day, when the book closes, I hope that children grow up to be as fearless and brave as their favorite character. I hope they always always extend that same love to themselves first. (and i hope they don’t grow up too fast!!!!!!) “

We are happy to announce our Volunteer of the Month for September: Marie- Noël Thibodeau!

Here is a message from Marie- Noël Thibodeau: “My experience with minibiblioPLUS started with reading books in video format, but it was when I started reading directly to children that I saw the impact I could have. They love to be read to and they are so curious, it’s beautiful to see. I am fortunate to have fallen in love with reading from a young age and hope I can pass this love on to children. The book I chose was one of my favorites when I was a kid!.”

Lance Lee-Chun

We are happy to announce our Volunteer of the Month for August: Lance Lee-Chen! Here is a message from Lance: “It’s been a privilege to be able to give my time every week to the groups of kids I work with, and to want nothing in return. The deepest feelings of gratitude I’ve experienced in life, are a by product of people who have made the time for me and wanted absolutely nothing in return. Those who’ve left me with a positive experience I will never forget until the end of time. My sincerest thanks to and the staff at Superkids who have permitted me with the opportunity to continue my work with an amazing group of kids in-person, live, and present.”

Amanda Fournier

We are happy to announce our Volunteer of the month for July: Amanda Founier!

“Reading has always been a central part of my childhood, from sensory books as a baby to “how-to” books like this one (which still remains one of my favourites today) a bit later on. I believe that early literacy is a fundamental part of a developing child’s mind. This is why I saw volunteering with as a wonderful opportunity to share my love of books, and to support parents/guardians in promoting reading to young children during these challenging times.“ Amanda Founier

Volunteer of the Month – May

Joan Hongoh

Our volunteer of the month for May is Joan Hngoh, one of our most dedicated and passionate storytime volunteers. “It has been my pleasure to work with Minibiblioplus for the past few years as a volunteer. I read to my little friends at Cocon du Bonheur, in Côte des Neiges and more recently at La Garderie Mary Poppins in NDG.  To share love and warmth with these wonderful children always brightens my day and reminds me of my days as a kindergarten teacher.  Having studied Children’s Literature with Montreal’s wonderful professor Marion Blake and having done much work in “teaching reading” as part of my McGill Master’s degree, I cannot underestimate the value of reading.” Joan Hongoh
