What is it?
Pupils volunteering in the library for roughly an hour a week during their free time. Pupils work through a training scheme learning library assistant skills and helping promote reading and the library.
What sort of space will you need?
When could it take place?
Whenever it suits pupils/ librarian but usually a combination of break, lunch and before or after school. Totaling a minimum an hour a week.
1. pupils volunteer to help in the school library.
2. working - librarian allocates tasks and train how to do jobs around the library - from shelving to cataloging to displays to book recommendations.
3. pupils run their own reading hacks!
For larger groups roles can be allocated to days with a pupil taking on leadership role for that day team.
Librarian also needs to make up a training scheme (or adapt one) and then celebrate with pupils as they work their way through.
