Maya attends the weekly Homework Help sessions held at West Boulevard Library.

On her first visit in October 2011, she was very shy. When our volunteer Ms. Swift tried to help Maya with her homework, she actually cried. Maya likes books but has not quite mastered reading, so I suggested we do picture walks where we look at the pictures instead of reading the story. However, that was not enough for her.

She likes reading the story and has no problem tackling the new words within the story. With each visit I see Maya’s confidence level increasing. She has learned how to log into the children’s computers and select games to play. She knows where to return her library books (each week she checks out two books).She has even learned how to check out her own library books.

Maya is on her way to becoming a lifelong library user.

Libraries change lives!
