Save Ms. Rebecca's Storytime!

This petition had 447 supporters

Ms. Rebecca does an impeccable job leading this program. Her enthusiasm for children’s learning is apparent in everything she does, and she is skilled at engaging the children in a way that is hard to come by. It is clear that she has a deeply seated love for reading, and genuinely strives to pass this along to the children who attend. She makes all the children feel like they are special to her (and they genuinely are.) It is evident that working with children and sharing her love of learning and reading is Ms. Rebecca’s passion.


Overall, the children's programming at our library is excellent. We love attending all of the events, and feel so welcomed by the staff that we have met. The news of this change makes causes worry that the department is changing direction, which would really be a shame. Part of the Athens-Clarke County Library mission statement is to “foster enjoyment and a love of reading”, which is precisely what Ms. Rebecca does - there isn't a much better way to describe her. It would be a crime to remove her from the storytime program at the library. Her excellence has been the reason for our attendance, and we will not attend while this injustice stands. Please allow Ms. Rebecca to keep leading storytime at the library.
