Library

The library is a wonderful place to see your child in learning action! There are roles for parents with flexible or inflexible availability. Please see below for details:

 

  1. BORROWING:

Parent volunteers are needed to help check in books that have been returned as   well as to help check out books that are being borrowed.    Library volunteers will be trained in the very simple library computer system prior to their first shift. 

 

This is a great way to learn about outstanding contemporary children’s literature    and to see your child in a relaxed setting.

 

Please note this is a 1x/month commitment where you are expected to find a replacement if you cannot make your selected date.  Time slots are recurring days and times (1x/month).

 

  1. COLLECTION MANAGEMENT:

Maintaining and adding to the library at South is the work of many hands and minds.  If you enjoy learning about current and classic children’s literature in the company of friends, please consider volunteering to add, mend, cover, or label library books.

 

  1. CURRICULUM HELPERS FOR  K -5th GRADES:

The library curriculum for all classes features many interesting art activities and research opportunities that are tied to outstanding classic or contemporary literature and to the California standards.  If you like listening to great picture books, helping with research projects, and prepping art materials, please consider volunteering in this capacity. 

 

  1. BOOKMARKS:

South students love making bookmarks celebrating good books they have read. You will be using the color copier and laminator in the library to make copies of bookmarks created by South students.

 

  1. BIRTHDAY BOOKS:

This is a great way to help the library on your own time.  Be in charge of the Birthday Book Program for the library!  Keep track of the donations by families for the birthday books, organize the children's birthdays by month, and make labels to put in their chosen books.  You will be taught how to do this job at the beginning of the school year.
