While she is willing to continue this work next year, she would like to offer an opportunity for another parent to fill this role in 2017-2018. The basic tasks involve: being at school each Friday for Library classes, checking books in and out, ordering new books, organizing two Book Fairs each year, and keeping the Media center tidy. Mrs. Kress is willing to train a new person as well. If you are interested in volunteering, please contact Mr. Frey.
