Library Aides: Building Character, Advancing Service
Muronaga, Karen; Masumura, Emmi
Library Media Connection, v26 n4 p10-14 Jan 2008
Many school library media specialists, especially in elementary schools, establish library clubs and library monitor programs. In most cases, these clubs and programs are limited to students assisting with clerical duties in the library such as shelving books and manning the circulation desk under supervision. The library media specialist assigns students to a rotating schedule of duties and students usually help out at recesses. Lincoln Elementary School in Hawaii takes a different perspective on student service in the library. There, student volunteerism is a rich opportunity to develop a service-oriented program focusing on building character, work ethics, and leadership. This article describes Lincoln Elementary's library aide program. (Contains 3 figures.)
