I think this is an opportunity that I would actually like to take advantage of. I've always loved books and wish I could read more. I even find the books meant for little kids entertaining. I truly enjoy storytime with my nephew and although he is only two and a half, I feel like I could translate that experience to assisting in a school library for a couple of hours each week.
