We are excited to tell you about the new student library aide program that we are launching in the library. Adopt a shelf is going to allow our students to take ownership and pride in their library. It will also be a big help for staff.
The plan is to assign the students their own shelves to look after. They will be in charge of straightening their shelf and checking the carts to see if any books need to be re-shelved on to their shelves. This can be done at the teacher’s discretion throughout the week. After the students get familiar with their shelf this should only take about 10-15 minutes a week.
At this time, we are only going to open the program to fourth and fifth graders that have been recommended by their teachers.
