Children of Promise

I’ve been a volunteer librarian at Children of Promise, an after school program and summer camp for children of incarcerated parents, since last summer. You can read a bit about the beginning of the library and see before and after pictures here.  Friday was the first day of camp that the kids had library class and it was awesome. Unfortunately I had laryngitis since Tuesday, so I sounded kind of crazy, but I was able to read some stories and have fun discussions.  I also spent a lot of time trying to shelve and reorganize our collection, all of which has been donated. There were also two really great 9 year olds, who asked if they could come help me during their lunch time.
