Early Literacy Workshop

Parent Workshop at LMRC

We facilitated an online Early Literacy Workshop with parents of LaSalle Multicultural Resource Center – LMRC. Here is what they had to say:
‼️🗣“On behalf of LMRC and especially the early childhood development program, I would like to express gratitude to the minibiblioPLUS team for all the work you do, LMRC and our community of families continue to benefit from your support; you are truly making an impact in our community. I received feedback on your presentation yesterday and the facilitators and social worker were very thankful, as well as the parents who were very engaged and felt that you have provided them new tips, reminders and refreshed their practice with their children for literacy success and general wellbeing.”
Thank you to LMRC and the parents for their participation and for encouraging the love of reading with the little ones at home!

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.”
