MEDIA MOMS (AND DADS)
If you haven't signed up yet to volunteer in the media center, please consider taking on one of these quick and relaxing 1-hour shifts. You will primarily spend your time re-shelving books and occasionally assisting students in searching for/checking out books when Mrs. Kossak is engaged in class story time or a co-taught lesson.
BONUS for Parents of Pre-K and Kindergarteners:
Mrs. Kossak’s weekly story time could be a fun time for you to volunteer in the library, see your child at school and give him/her a quick hug. The story time schedule can be viewed on the Austin Library Calendar.
If you are interested in volunteering, or have questions, please visit the Volunteer page
of the Austin PTO Website.
The Austin Media Squad is a group of fifth-grade volunteer student assistants who work in the library media center before school from 7:20-7:45 AM. One of their primary responsibilities is to assist parents, teachers, and peers in using the electronic card catalog (Destiny), locating books, and checking out materials. They also help manage information technology hardware and keep the library space tidy, organized, and running efficiently. Media Squad applications are issued to interested fourth-graders each spring. Members are selected based on application responses and student-completed rubric.
