Volunteer of the Month – February
Adrian (Hannah) Dragan
My experience as a storytime volunteer has been very educational and I enjoy bringing joy and smiles to children while initiating them to literature. Through storytime, I help to increase the literacy rate of our youth while encouraging their creativity and not repressing their energy. I DO IT WITH LOVE!
Volunteer of the Month – January
We are happy to announce our Volunteer of the Month for January, who also happens to be our newest team member, Mathilde Routy! Mathilde has been a dedicated volunteer since last fall as a Storytime Animator at her daughter’s daycare! She is an experienced animator who also works at the Westmount Public Library. We are very happy to have her as our new Communications Coordinator at .
“It’s really magical to see the special connection that is created with the children through books. Every week, we laugh, we’re scared, we’re moved, but most of all we have a lot of fun!”
Volunteer of the Year 2019
Shamim brought her children to the Fraser Hickson when they were young and it was during these visits that she began to wish she could work at the library. Shamim began volunteering at the Fraser Hickson Institute in 1984 and after two months was hired as a staff member. She worked until the Fraser Hickson closed in 2007 and has volunteered at the locations that the library moved to including its current home at 3755 rue Botrel. We are very grateful for Shamim’s dedication and generosity throughout the years.
