  • Library Volunteers

    LIBRARY VOLUNTEERS There are three types of volunteer opportunities in the Chickering library.  All require that siblings remain at home. You can choose a “behind the scenes” position by helping to re-shelve books before students arrive in the library each morning. Volunteers will need to come in 1 to 2 times per month. Help is needed from 8:45-9:30am.   Kindergarten parents can join their child’s class in the library to help familiarize children with the library computer system and provide general assistance to the librarians.  This is a great way to get to know your child’s kindergarten class:  You can help weekly, all year, as a Library Aide.  We need 9 individuals who would be willing to volunteer a 2 or 3 hour shift, one day a week, each week of the school year. This would provide continuity for the students, teachers and volunteers, with regard to training and coverage of the library. Training will be provided for this special “team” shortly after school begins. Please take the survey below, only if you can make this commitment weekly for the entire year. Thank you. Go to Google Survey  <>  Feel free to email Mrs. Chase [] or call her at 508-785-0480 ext. 2033. *School Day Commitment Please understand that we have high demand for the library positions and sadly cannot accommodate everyone.  Sign Up Here
