 News from the Social Action Coalition
 Library Volunteers Needed

The library at the Morse School is up and running.  Although there is a part time librarian who works there, volunteers are still needed to help out.  The volunteers will help students select and check out books and reshelve books.  Some volunteers may choose to read aloud to groups of students.  All new volunteers will be trained--it's very simple.  Volunteers shifts are on Mondays and Thursdays for 2 hours.  The children are excited to come to the library and borrow books. This can be a very rewarding experience for our volunteers.

You can do this job once a week, once a month, or whenever it is convenient for you.  To see what shifts are available and to sign up go to (in the URL spot) and sign up for the times that work for you.
