love kids. love books. volunteer at our library. *

Volunteering in the library/media center is a wonderful way to connect with Congdon kids through their elementary years.  Congdon has an amazingly high number of books that are circulated each year. We would love your help!

how: help the librarian, Ms. Eason, by checking in/out books for students, shelving books and assisting with special projects.  Training, information & guidance is provided.

when: as you are able.  A schedule (in two hour increments) will be posted online in Volunteer Spot.  Come for the full two hours or stay for 30 minutes. Some people like to sign up for a certain day each week/month.  Other people enjoy working the days their child’s class is in the library. You could also schedule it when you happen to be at the school for other commitments.  Signups are online so you can manage your own availability, but please connect with Michelle Henningsgaard to get additional information. http://signup.com/go/8WnxuF

interest or questions: please contact Michelle Henningsgaard at 218-329-0261 or michelleblenker@yahoo.com
