Dear John Green Parents,
The John Green Library has started checking out books to students and we are looking for parent volunteers for the 2016-17 school year. The library volunteer is an ongoing position throughout the school year, but I also accept drop-in help or appreciate anytime that you may have available.
I am looking for volunteers on Tuesdays through Fridays from 8:45am to 2:00pm. I also may have needs for help if you are available after 2:00pm to the end of the school day. There is no set shift or amount of time required, but most volunteers work about 30 minutes during the time of day and the day of the week that suits their schedule. No library experience is necessary, but a brief orientation of the library will be given before your first volunteer day. Most of the time will be spent shelving books and organizing shelves, but there are other tasks such as labeling and prepping new books for the shelves.
Please email me some times or dates you may be available and then I can set up a brief orientation time. If you have any additional questions feel free to email me [email protected] or call 925 833-4200 ext 6608.
