April is National School Library Month, a great time to stop and thank the many volunteers who do so much to “keep the wheels on the machine” in the library.
Keeley Schell, Janet Walsh, Gerry Quinlan and Alice McNeish give time every week to staff the circulation desk, catalog new materials and get them shelf-ready, repair older materials, shelve books, put up displays, and perform many other tasks. Jennifer Stearns has spine-taped dozens and dozens of new paperback book at home this year. Bonny Picard often pinch-hits at the circ desk. Long-time volunteer Nancy Trono (20+ years) is on hand nearly every day to shelve books, staff the circulation desk, manage periodicals circulation and assist with Pre-K resource needs. Becca Brynga has managed several Scholastic Book Fairs held here at school this year, the profits from which go to purchasing wonderful new materials for the library and classrooms. And many, many more SFX parents step up to run these week-long book fairs. To all of them, we say: Thank You!
