Teal Wall, a nine year old girl, is a regular customer at the Ross-University Hills Branch Library. She enjoyed doing the crafts and participating in Summer Reading 2012.
After finishing her monogram art craft she described in her own words what reading means to her:
"Reading is going to new places and having adventures! Also, going to the library and doing fun activities!”
Some of her favorite books to read are the Dear America series.
I started volunteering at the Denver Public Library in February of 2010. I had just finished my first semester of my third year at Pitzer College in Claremont, California and had decided to take a leave of absence for the Spring semester. I needed to do something with myself during my time off because I didn’t want to only laze around (though I had plans to do some of that).
It was important to me that I pursued my interests: tutoring, working with kids, and continuing to learn. The library seemed like a good first stop. Ultimately, I accomplished my goal of tutoring and working with kids instead by volunteering with Denver Public Schools, but I also volunteered at the two nearest library branches to me at the time: Ross-University Hills and Eugene Field.
