What inspired you to work with children and other teens at Clarendon Library?
Working at the library this summer was a great experience.
I learned about setting up programs and working with children and teens.
I thought at first I may not gain the respect of fellow teens, but I was able to get them to always be part of the summer programs, especially when we were doing board games. I had fun working with the Clarendon staff, especially Ms. Ann. She made me feel very confident. I always have a big smile daily, because I Iove working at the library. As a competitive individual, I was always taught to work hard towards setting goals, and as a Book Buddy I was able to set goals as well as show my creativity in art. I love reading and helping people, and I will continue volunteering at the Clarendon Library as a Shelf Organizer. My journey through the library is always a happy one.
