Parents and volunteers

Parents/carers and other volunteers can be asked to do many of the jobs of the library assistant – see library assistant job description  – as well has help with library events and activities throughout the year. In many schools, parents are actively involved in fund-raising, creastive projects and organising book weeks.

Encouraging parents/carers to read with their children is key in the reading development of the child, and so asking parents to work with an experienced librarian will have the added value of involving them further in their own children’s reading.
