When a was a little kid we still hadn't moved to the main city in our country (although we lived in a fairly urban area) and we didn't really have a lot of money so they used to just take me a lot to the library, as we still didn't have cable and internet. I can still remember the people who used to read us stories, sing for us and help us draw. They were the kindest ppl I have ever met (although I'm somehow biased)
I really would like to be able to reach out to others like that... sometimes i help out as a camp counselor in the holidays and always like to tell the kids made up stories. I think it helps spark an appreciation for the outside world and all the magical mistique it contains for a 5yo and etc etc but it's not enough you know?
As far as my actual understanding goes, those people were volunteering their free time and I would never be able to afford doing that. My plan as of now is just studying my butt off to get to a nice law school and get bank $$$ to make donations to those libraries, I wouldn't then have time to volunteer but it is a compromise I'm willing to make. I will subject my mortal soul to the judiciary system but I hope I help out ppl who need those spaces more then me lol
(Also sorry for any grammar mistakes, as English is not my first language)
