Book Start Volunteer Testimonial

I am a retired teacher in the Book Start program. I have been reading to children ages 2 to 5, every Thursday at a lovely day care center for over 6 years. Of all the volunteer opportunities I have had, Book Start is my all-time favorite. I am greeted by shrieks of joy each week. The Book Start program has provided wonderful books, poems, songs, and manipulative materials week after week. The children are totally involved and excited. The best part is seeing the same child graduate from the diaper class through to kindergarten, and watching the love of books develop. Douglas County Libraries has provided a wonderful, rewarding literary opportunity for our youngest residents and adult volunteers alike. -Nancy L.       Find Volunteer Opportunities Here
