Volunteer of the month -August

Sivaranjini Ramesh

We are delighted to announce our volunteer of the month for August 2023: Sivaranjini Ramesh! Here’s a message from her:

“I had the wonderful opportunity to volunteer at minibiblioPLUS, an oasis of learning and imagination. It’s remarkable how this library extends its doors to daycares and children for free. This inclusivity ensures that every child can experience the enchantment of books right in their daycare setting.

When I was a child, I cherished my visits to the library, immersing myself in captivating stories. Witnessing minibiblioPLUS bring the magic of books to children in the cozy embrace of their daycare centers is truly incredible. The well-organized shelves, thoughtfully categorized books, and the library’s commitment to promoting equity and cultural understanding showcases its dedication to fostering knowledge.
In my role as a library assistant, I had the privilege of not only shelving books but also delving into their contents. Exploring topics as profound such as mental health and the pandemic, pertinent yet often overlooked, was eye-opening. What’s even more inspiring is that children are introduced to these sensitive subjects, encouraging them to embrace responsibility and empathy from an early age.

Learning the intricacies of library management, from the Dewey Decimal System to cataloging and shelf organization, brought me immense pride and a sense of accomplishment.
The experience of being a librarian was exhilarating, and Marco’s reminder of the quote, “I’m a librarian, what’s your superpower?” encapsulated the empowerment I felt with every passing week.
Although my schedule keeps me occupied at the moment, I eagerly anticipate the day I can return to minibiblioPLUS once more, rekindling the passion I hold for books, organization, and the boundless world of learning.
