Melbourne High School Library: Library Assistants' Program

What do we do?

Library Assistants make a valueable contribution to the library and the school.

Initially students are rostered to assist at the borrowing desk, helping with returning and loaning items and reshelving the Fiction and Graphic Novels. 

Once students are more experienced they assist with routine tasks around the library more broadly and also reshelve the non-fiction items. 

We hold several library and bookweek events through the year and students help in the organisation of these. Students are welcome to suggest ideas for events too. 

There are other aspects to the program such as writing book reviews and helping to select items for the library to purchase.

Students are expected to help out once a week. 

Many of our activities and events are prompted on our Facebook Page we encourage members of the MHS Library Assistants to join our group.
