Student Librarians: Contributors in Our Learning Community

Our student librarians are contributors and leaders in our Elementary School community. Over the first half of the year, our student librarian team, made up of Grade 3, 4 and 5 volunteer students, have given hours of their time each week to work in the Elementary Library.

The student librarians volunteer during one of three times during the day; early morning before school, recess times or after school until 4pm. The team began the year with training sessions with Ms. Bello and Ms. Pollock, learning the layout of the library, the circulation system, and basic library procedures.

Responsibilities of the the student librarians include organizing shelves, assisting others in the library, cleaning books, shelving, managing the circulation desk and helping with special project such as visiting authors preparations.

We are excited to take our first ever student librarians field trip in March to the Emirates Literature Festival to see Francesca Simon, author of the Horrid Henry series.

We look forward to more outstanding work from our student librarians as the school year continues. Thank you for all your hard work and dedication and for setting an example for the rest of the community about what it means to give your time and make a difference!
