Books
Library Volunteers Needed
Published: Thu, Feb 8, 2018, 11:04PM CST

The DCE library needs volunteers to help with library duties which include shelving books, helping check books in/out and helping students locate books.

Volunteers also pull books for class projects, assist in covering new books as they come in, and deliver books to teachers as requested. Our kids LOVE to read and we process hundreds of books in and out of the library every single week! The library is the hub of the school and this is a great way to get to know your student’s class — you are free to volunteer during your student’s class library time or any other times that fit your schedule.

If you are interested in volunteering at the DCE library please email our librarian Kim Drawbaugh at kdrawbaugh@coppellisd.com.
