This club will encourage students to take a leadership role in the library! Library Leaders get the inside scoop on the media center and receive training so that they can assist with special tasks like scanning and shelving books, decorating book displays, and more. Students will also help choose NEW books to purchase for the media center! We will create a survey and collect responses to find out what kids want and choose books to order accordingly. Once books arrive, students will help with any basic processing (stamping inside cover) and help promote them in the library and on our Morning News Show!
If you're interested, pick up a leadership application from the media center!
