Some reminders:

You are our front line! You reflect our image and our goals. Our goal is for each student library aide to become a leader through serving fellow students, teachers, and staff.

As a library aide you will be:

  • Reminding students to sign in and follow library rules
  • Shelving materials and straightening shelves
  • Helping students
  • Help keep the library neat, clean, and organized
  • Setting a positive example for those around you

Library expectations that apply to ALL students (including you):

  • Food/ Drink: not allowed in the LMC
  • Social Media/ Personal Devices: Academic use only (no snapchat, YouTube, Facebook, Vine, etc.)
  • Please keep an appropriate volume (students are often testing or need to concentrate)
  • Be on time and stay until the end of the block
  • If you need o leave to use the restroom, go to your locker, have a dentist appointment, etc. - COMMUNICATE with LMC staff so we know where you are AND can write you a pass
  • You CAN put in your earbuds and listen to music while you work! THANK you for all you do!!

Welcome ~ General Information

Welcome to our library team! We are so thankful and happy to have you here. Our goal is SERVICE! We are here to help students and teachers locate information and use the technology available with ease. You are our front line! You reflect our image and our goals.

Every day - check this list and get started on the 'to do' list:

ALWAYS needed:
