What is the difference between a Library Volunteer vs Classroom Library Volunteer?
As a Library Volunteer you would be dedicating your time directly to the SHE Library and primarily help with re-shelving and organizing various library materials. Your time is not tied to a specific class or teacher.
A Classroom Library Volunteer comes to the library when your child’s visits the library as a class. Volunteers are typically requested for Kindergarten and 1st grade classes to assist with learning proper library skills. Typically, each class has a dedicated library time when students are able to check out books. As a Classroom Library Volunteer your role is to help students find books to check out and take home. For this, you must sign-up through your classroom sign-ups provided by your child’s teacher or room parents.
You can do both! You can be a Classroom Library Volunteer and then come before or after your child’s classroom time and continue helping as a Library Volunteer.
How do I sign-up to be a Library Volunteer?
Please contact the Library Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org and let he/she know what days and times you may be available. The Library Coordinator will send out a master schedule to all Library Volunteers once it is in place.
Thank you for volunteering your time and helping us keep the SHE Library organized for the students and staff!
