Inspirational work...

In May I began working as a volunteer at The Montreal Children's Library-Atwater Branch...Why?...because it's fun!...and inspiring...and because I have access to an endless supply of children’s books to read and observe the marvelous art in them. I get to meet new people, including children of all ages who come to the library and I also get to see Elizabeth Macdonnell, in action, telling stories to tiny tots and preschoolers. I am learning so much from her about children literature. Elizabeth is an exceptional librarian and storyteller. She also devotes a lot of time to the library’s Outreach Story Program going to hospitals, schools and organizations, reading and telling stories to children with special needs. Even though I’ve only been there for a short while, being at the library once a week has enriched my creative life as an emerging illustrator in the children's book industry and I look forward continuing my volunteer work there...
