Become a Library Volunteer!

UPDATE (as of December 5th, 2021):

Three classes (two Kindergarten & one 3rd grade) have volunteers now! Thank you!!

We still need volunteers to help out in the library for THREE (3) 5th grade groups.

  • 5th Grade - based on music class 5th graders are in (Band/Orchestra/General) and when they have their specialist (students should be able to tell you the day and if they are dismissed for the day from library). You can also definitely contact your teacher to find out this library section your student is in!
    • Orchestra 2: Thursdays, 3:00-3:45 pm -- biggest group, could REALLY use a volunteer 
    • General Music 1: Fridays, 2:15-3:00 pm
    • General Music 2: Fridays, 3:00-3:45 pm

Our PTA coordinates a group of volunteers who assist the librarians at Canyon Creek.

The goal is for EVERY class at the school to have a Library Volunteer EVERY week, which allows the librarians to spend more time with the children, reading to the class, helping each child to pick out just the right book for them, or helping them with the computers (older grades). 

The Library Volunteers will:

  • check out books to students using our computer circulation system
  • check in returned books
  • re-shelf books according to library call number (requires knowledge of ABC order as well as number order that includes decimal points)
  • assist students in finding books using our library catalog (training will be provided)

Tidying books on shelves and "shelf reading" (systematically checking that books are in shelf order) will be side jobs during times volunteers are not assisting students.

All volunteers must have an NSD background check and COVID vaccine (bring proof to school). Please visit the NSD Volunteer Page for more information on the volunteer application process (

The start date for library volunteering is October 4th, 2021!

5th Grade library schedules have been updated and are based on their music selection (not their class). Please talk to your 5th grader to find out which group they are in. If the are unsure, maybe the teacher can help. We do not have a list of students.
