Be a Friend of the Library! It's a unique way for students to be involved in supporting their school library, and students can potentially earn approved volunteer time during the school day. Being a FOTL is also a great way to add flair and uniqueness to student applications and resumes.
Q: Do Friends have to read or shelve books?
A: Not unless you want to! This is not a book club.
Q: Why would I be a Friend of the Library?
A: Friends is a fun and creative ways to participate by adding to the school library collective even in the smallest of ways. Participation can also add a unique flair to your applications and resumes and help yours stand out from the crowd. Friends that take on a seriously involved project, like creating tutorials or initiating literacy events can earn approved volunteer hours.
Q: I cannot / do not want to attend meetings during 0 hour, Activities or after school. Can I still be involved?
A: Yes! Friends is not a club with member or meeting requirements.
Q: What if I participate in Friends for a while and become too busy with academics/athletics/work to continue participating?
A: There are no obligations to fundraise or meet outside of school hours. Friends is meant to be flexible and easy to participate within the school library.
Q: How can I find out more?
A: Stop by the library and ask Mrs. Moody and / or join the Group Friends of the Library on Schoology
