We are delighted to announce our volunteer of the month for July 2023: Shakera Ahmed! Here’s a message from her:

Since starting this journey as a storytime animator, this role has brought me immense joy and satisfaction!
Volunteering at minibiblioPLUS helped me become a more flexible person. When working with children, you quickly realize that anything can happen, but you learn to adapt to those unique situations. Seeing the children’s faces light up with excitement just by my presence makes this role even more enjoyable. Their eagerness gives me the energy to work harder to make the next reading session more memorable.

MinibliblioPLUS impacts those children positively, and I am witnessing it throughout this journey. These reading sessions allow them to express their opinions and feelings but also gain confidence by doing so. Through this role, I also have the opportunity to instill important values, morals, and life lessons since most of the books are educational. Most importantly, Minibiblioplus is also impacting their families. By providing these storytelling sessions, we alleviate some of the burdens faced by parents who may be unable to dedicate sufficient time to reading with their children. We become a valuable support system.

Thank you for allowing me to contribute to such a meaningful cause!
