Being in contact with the kids from CPE Garderie Kan Tsipor has given me the chance to relive childhood memories by sharing the childrens’ stories that had once been books that I’ve read. It was a real pleasure to read and give new colors to the kids imagination.” Chantelle Piano

Volunteer of the Month – May 2020

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
