Library Volunteers Still Needed: The Alcott School Library Media Center relies on a network of parent volunteers. Under the guidance of Library Volunteer Coordinators, volunteers are recruited and trained at the start of each school year and a volunteer schedule is created to cover all classes for that school year. Volunteer tasks include: circulation of material, shelving and shelf reading, assisting students with book selection, and housekeeping. Volunteers are asked to commit to a biweekly or weekly schedule. Openings remain in the following classes: Woodward, Martin, Delaney, Wilson, Chatlosh, Gregor, Chan, Woodman, LoRusso, McSweeney, and McGuire .
