Library Learning Commons


The Burr Library (or LLC–LibraryLearningCommons) is a very busy place and weneed your help! Please consider signing up to be a Library Volunteer this year - grandparents are welcome as well! Volunteering in the library is a great way to see your children and their friends, get to know the teachers, and to generally see how Burr works. It’s easy (no experience necessary) and fun, especially if you schedule with a friend. Shifts are 2 hours long and we can always work with your schedule. If your schedule does not fit into these time frames, please let us know what works for you.  We can and want to be totally flexible.  The morning shift (9:00-11:00) usually has a lot of activity with kids returning books, checking out books and classes coming in. The midday shift (11:00-1:00)  is usually the quietest in the library but often students come in during recess and right after lunch to check out books. The afternoon shift (1:00-3:00) is a great time for Kindergarten parent volunteers as the children often come in during the afternoon. (Don’t forget to tell your child when you will be in the library. Teachers will usually let them come down for a visit during your shift.) Sign up for once a week, every other week or once a month. 


Thank you very much from the LLC Team,

Judy Salemme, Kate McGuinness and Cathy Sondheim
