Volunteer at Burbank Library Shelf Read
Date: 01/07/2020 (Tue.)
Time: 8:45am
Location: Burbank Library

Twice a year, library volunteers help Robin Hines, our librarian, go through all the books in the library to put them back in order so that our children (and Robin) can find them. This is called a shelf read.
While this is time-consuming work, the excellent company makes it all worthwhile. The more people who come, the faster it goes.

The upcoming shelf read will be Tuesday, January 7th, 2020 after drop off in the morning until we have finished.
We hope you can make it. Even if you cannot stay the whole time, Robin would appreciate your help.
The second shelf read will happen towards the end of the school year.

Thank you so very much for your help thus far with the library!
