The library is in need of volunteers for shelving books, checking out and returning books, helping students find books, or other tasks to help the librarian.  There are morning and afternoon volunteer times available each day, Monday through Friday.  The morning AM slot is from 9:00-11:00 am and afternoon PM is from 1:00-3:00 pm.  You can volunteer once a week, biweekly, or even just once a month.
