Marie- Noël Thibodeau

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
