McCormack School Library Volunteers

In 2015, Trinity volunteers helped establish a library at the McCormack Middle School, where previously there wasn't one. Volunteers work in teams at the library in four-hour shifts, 10:00-2:00, a minimum of one day per week. The library is open Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays.  Opportunities include helping students choose books, leading a book club, serving as a reading mentor, and generally being supportive to the students and the staff. Our goal is to be creative and flexible as we strive to encourage a culture of reading at the McCormack. Administrative tasks include cataloging and shelving books, and creating monthly displays and/or interactive activities for the students. The school's library serves as a warm, welcoming, and relaxing place for students, many of whom have experienced trauma in their homes or communities. Volunteers help provide a nurturing and enriching atmosphere.
