The Happy Hollow Library welcomes the help and expertise of many fine volunteers. Students, parents and Senior Citizens alike volunteer their time to help students find books, check in and out books, return them to the shelves, and perform other tasks such as covering books or designing bulletin boards. Volunteering in the library is a nice chance to interact with students in a friendly environment or work behind the scenes in a support role. We have regular time slots for volunteers on a weekly or biweekly basis or on an as-needed basis for those who can't commit to a regular slot. Speak to a member of the library staff if you think you'd like to participate in our volunteer program. Volunteering in the library is fun and rewarding.  Duties include checking books in and out, as well as covering and repairing books and other special projects.  No experience necessary!  We will train you.  This is a yearlong commitment, so please sign up for all the dates of the class you would like to cover.  Thank you!

4th and 5th grade students can also assist as Library Aides or Tech Assistants. These students are trained to make book recommendations to their peers, help other students with technology trouble shooting, and other tasks as defined by the librarian. 4th and 5th graders who are interested in helping in the library will need to fill out an application and have it signed by their classroom teachers. Accepted students attend a training session, and agree to behave appropriately while assisting in the library. Students may help before school, during recess (if they so choose), during select kindergarten classes, and during their own class on a rotating basis.
