Volunteer of the month – December 2021

Daniel Savulescu

We are delighted to announce our volunteer of the month for December 2021: Daniel Savulescu! Here’s a message from him:

“For my first volunteering experience as a student, I eagerly accepted to join  because I find that it is never too early to introduce books into the life of a child. Giving toddlers the pleasure of being able to enjoy stories reminds me of the joy I felt when my parents read to me. Books have allowed me to stimulate my imagination and arouse my curiosity, to escape and to immerse myself in a world of fantasy. This has been such a rewarding experience which has allowed me to be not only a source of information for children’s literacy and to promote the love of reading but also a source of joy, pleasure, and comfort.”

Reading has always been an important part of my life. Becoming a volunteer ay , I now pass on this treasure that has benefited me to so many children. Meeting the children once a week is more like a recharge for each other, as they are fascinated and inspired by the stories I bring to them, and I take pleasure and satisfaction in their pure eyes and laughter. I feel so lucky to be able to accompany and witness the children’s first steps towards reading, and I often imagine that one day in their lives they will suddenly realize the changes that books have brought to them. You never know if a story will change a child’s life at some special moment in the future.

When I first discovered , I immediately thought to myself this was a great project and I needed to contribute! My volunteer hours quickly became the highlight of my week. The children were so excited to have me read to them and what’s more, one story was never enough! Some days they didn’t even want to let me leave even until I had read them all my books. Another great experience has been my time volunteering in the library. Cataloguing, processing and especially stamping books has been very satisfying and fulfilling. My hours there always go by too fast! In a few words, those moments of reading in the daycares and cataloguing books in the library have been ones of pure happiness. I am glad to be part of and its mission to provide free access to books and to inspire a passion for reading!”
