Volunteer Assistant Librarians, Orchard Gardens K-8 Pilot School, Roxbury, MA

The Edna V. Bynoe Library at Orchard Gardens K-8 Pilot School is looking for Assistant Librarians. The school has a student body of almost 1000 children, all of whom visit the beautiful library on a weekly basis. Kids in grades K-3 have scheduled classes, which consist of read-alouds and choosing books. The older kids visit the library with their teachers or on their own. The library is never empty. There is a constant buzz (we're working on making it a quiet buzz) of activity and excitement. Consequently, there are myriad tasks that need to be done, and you will be helping the librarian complete these tasks. 


Responsibilities:

  • Re-shelve books
  • Check books in
  • Check books out
  • Set up book displays


If you would like to take on these responsibilities, you may, but they are not required:

  • Communicate with teachers about resources they need and acquire those resources
  • Engage in reading advisory conversations with students
  • Learn the Polaris system to catalog books



If you have questions or are interested in volunteering, please contact Erica Pastor, Orchard Gardens Librarian, at epastor2@bostonpublicschools.org

Volunteer, Archives Project for SLA - New England, Boston, MA

Are you looking to use some of the skills you are learning in your Archives classes at Simmons? A volunteer opportunity is available to organize approximately 4 boxes of materials located in the Simmons Archives on campus.  They originated from a former chapter of Special Libraries Association of New England, and need to be inventoried, documented and added to the existing archives collection of the current SLA-NE chapter.

This project can be completed by one student over the course of a semester, or if there are multiple volunteers, it can be a team effort.  This project can begin in January, and time commitment can vary according to your schedule.  There will be minimal supervision, so a self-starter with a bit of archives experience and/or classwork is preferred.

Please contact Susan McGovern at  suemcg820@yahoo.com for further details.
