Over thirty years later, our staff and volunteers are still recording and producing books, now in digital format. We are in the process of converting our library to digital format that works with the National Library Service’s talking book player. Our ever growing number of digital books continues to grow.

Awesome Kids Day Organization
We believe that kids were born not just to survive but to THRIVE! We know that for kids to thrive we need to provide them with some basics. They need outstanding nutrition, access to books, places to play as they build fine and gross motor skills, emotional nurturing, friendships, access to education, outstanding physical health, and strong community.
Awesome Kids Day is a day for us to celebrate the naturally healthy and joyful state of the children in our community and encourage them to live their lives with health, gratitude and joy.

During that time he also completed the certification through Kamana Four, a self directed three-year nature study program.
