Library Leaders

Mrs. Fournier was thrilled to kick off Library Orientations this week!  I already saw Kindergarten, 2nd grade, and 5th grade classes. 1st, 3rd & 4th grades are all coming next week. 

Students in 2nd-5th grade are all invited to apply for Library Leader positions.  This is the new incarnation of the program formerly known as Fournier's Friends- student volunteers who work in the library to keep it running smoothly. There are some changes this year to the program to help streamline it and make it more effective for both the students and Mrs. Fournier!
Library Leaders applications are due 9/15 - only two students will be selected per class, and typically we have about 60 applicants.  We will have two students serve each class in the fall, and an entirely new crew to serve each class in the spring, to maximize opportunities for interested candidates. We have a grading rubric that we use with completed applications to see which students know how to alphabetize, put numbers in order, and know how to help other students in the library. We're looking for students who can work independently, get great recommendations from their classroom teacher & have great customer service skills. We need dependable, reliable workers with good attendance records who will volunteer once a week before school or recess to help customers find and check out books, and manage checkout for their class. We encourage you to make sure those applications are complete and returned before the deadline!

Sound like something you'd like to do?  Get the application by clicking on the photo of the application, or come grab one in person from the Library.
