The baby boom among staff here at Denver Public Library has me wishing for a "kiss-and-cry" area similar to that for the skaters at the Olympics.
I am overjoyed for my colleagues and more than ever, feel called to make a meaningful contribution to society. Somehow, just caring for my pet cockatiel is not enough. Not one to play the tax card, I started to think about practical ways I can contribute to the success of children in my own community. And while the prospect is overwhelming, I have narrowed my tasks to three simple actions:
1) Don't text and drive,
2) Offer to baby-sit for friends and family waiving my required nonrefundable furniture deposit, and
3) Continue to provide educational and entertaining storytimes. Schlessman Family Branch Library offers storytime every Thursday at 10:30 a.m. thru April 29, 2010.
