Library Volunteers

FWE Library Catalog

Want to volunteer?

The Frostwood Library is a wonderful, busy place with excellent resources for students, staff, and parents to share. Volunteers assist with routine circulation desk tasks (check in/check out), help students locate materials, shelve books, and help keep the library straight. Thank you for your interest in helping our students in the library! Your active participation shows your children how much you value libraries, books, and reading -- a powerful message! 

Contact our Library Volunteer Coordinator to get on the Library Rotation.

Thank you to all  our volunteers

General Overview

Students visit the library with their class once a week for 30 or 45 minutes. As they enter they return their books for check in or for renewal, then they will stay for a read-aloud experience, information skills activity or other presentation. During this time the volunteer checks in or renews materials and shelves returned items. The volunteers then check out books once the children have made their selections. They straighten shelves, check that books are in exact order, and dust as time permits. Other tasks may be offered on an as needed basis. Please make sure you have registered as a volunteer with the district.

Please respect privacy and student confidentiality.

The time spent helping at school should not be used as a time to conference with your child's the teacher about your child. Please make arrangements for another time to meet with your child's teacher.

SBISD Volunteer Registration

The goal is for children to have a positive experience in the library. The library is the place to foster a love of reading to complement directed classroom reading and language arts instruction. In the library our learners exercise personal choice.

Here at Frostwood, we endorse The Three Bears Philosophy when it comes to reading: sometimes a student will choose a difficult book because he or she is fascinated by the subject, and it feels good to have a “big kid book" about what he or she is interested in. Other times a student will choose an easy book because a little relaxation is needed after stretching the brain muscle all day. Of course, sometimes the student needs to be paired with the book that is just right for a research project or for reading practice, and that guidance can be provided by the teacher or the librarian.

Your time is valuable and we thank you for choosing to spend it with us here in the library. 

Responsibilities

While there is no fine for overdue books, materials overdue by 30 days or more are assumed to be lost and a replacement fee will be assessed. If you feel our records are in error kindly email the librarian, Heather Bothe

Lost a book?

If a book is lost or damaged it must be paid for. Payment may be in the form of a check made out to SBISD, or with exact cash (change cannot be made). Send the payment to school marked Attention Library. Payment is refundable if a lost book is found and returned in good condition on or before the last day of the current school year.
