Library Volunteers Needed

One of the busiest times at the Mt. Gap lower library/media center is first thing in the morning; unfortunately, there are no student workers then! Parent volunteers would be a tremendous help.  Can you commit to one morning every other week to help kids check in/check out books, shelve books, and generally keep things organized? Slots are biweekly from 7:45 A.M. - 9:00 A.M.  If you can work weekly, just enter your name in both sets of slots.  Many thanks!!
