Library Volunteers

  • PFC Volunteer opportunities in the AC Stelle Library Media Center
    Requirements: proof of Covid vaccination, visitor health check-in, face masks, and TB clearance.

    Our library is staffed 32.5 hours per week by a Media Center Coordinator. Volunteers are an essential element which makes the library function smoothly at lunch (11:54 am to 12:32 pm). If you are interested in volunteering in the library, after reading the information below, please complete the Google Form below.

    Overview:

    Volunteers help check in students, perform circulation tasks, answer questions, help students find books, and manage student printing. It is a weekly task which requires a high level of commitment. Anyone who is available to help out before school (7:50 am - 8:20 am) is welcome. Volunteers are also asked to help with laptop check-out and check-in at the beginning and end of the school year.

    Weekly volunteers are required by the state of California to be interviewed by the district nurse and possibly tested for tuberculosis exposure. They are also required to sign confidentiality agreements with the district, to protect students' privacy.

    Basic Information for Volunteers
    Who works and when?
    We may open to all students (and volunteers) as early as Wednesday, August 18th, 2021. Laptop checkout to 6th grade will occur on the first few days of school. Regular volunteers work at lunchtime (11:54 am to 12:32 pm) every week. Wednesday volunteers may also choose to help during nutrition breaks on Staff Collaboration Minimum Days (10:50 am - 11:15 am). If you are new to the Library Media Center, please come 10 minutes early on your first day to get some basic training. You'll be working as a team, checking students into the library, checking books in and out, answering questions, putting titles on hold, and tidying up after lunch. 


    What else?
    The Library Media Center is a gift-free zone - your volunteerism is the best gift of all! If you still feel compelled to give, please consider book or gift card donations so everyone can benefit from your generosity. Personal gifts are almost always given away. Please let me know if you have any questions, concerns, or feedback. I'm easiest to reach via email: banderson@lvusd.org

    Thanks!
    As always, thank you for wanting to help in the Media Center. It wouldn't function smoothly without your help. I look forward to working with each and every one of you!
