Volunteer Opportunity in Charter School Library

Discovery Charter School in Inver Grove Heights, MN is looking for assistance setting up their library. The school is new this year (2016) and does not have a budget for books or a librarian for at least the next three years. Family and friends of the school have done an amazing job pulling in donated books.

We are looking for someone to:

*Assist in determining the organization structure for the library (e.g. Dewey Decimal, author, subject, reading level, etc.)

*Assist in determining a check-out system for the library

*Assist with developing a 3-5 year plan for the library

This is a fabulous résumé-building opportunity and a great way to use your knowledge, skills and abilities in a school setting.

If interested, please contact Discovery Charter School PTA at

**All volunteers are required to go through a background check (there is no charge for this) **
The school's address is 4100 66th Street E. Ste. #2, Inver Grove Heights, MN 55076
