“It has been such a remarkable experience volunteering with .  I was once a child enjoying books and Storytime from my teachers and volunteers. Now, it is my honor to share my love for reading with the children of today. The excitement on the children’s faces as they run to sit down in front of me, continues to be the highlight of my weeks. Moreover, the light in their eyes and the joy in their voices as they ask for another book is one of the many prime examples, that showcases the mission of  being fulfilled. I truly believe that reading brings everyone together through the adventures and important life lessons books hold.

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.
