Job Description:
    Students may request to be or may be selected to be library/media aides. Students are trained to provide clerical
       assistance such as stamping books, shelving books, recovering books and making other minor repairs. Other
       duties that student aides may perform are left to the discretion of the individual librarians. Some library media
       specialists may choose to allow students to work at the circulation desk, checking materials in and out. In
       addition, student aides are NOT allowed to collect fines or engage in any other monetary transactions.
    Students are asked to keep patron records private. It is a violation of the Privacy Act to share circulation
       information with others.
    Students need to be aware that they are working and many times other classes with their friends may come
       in. It is not appropriate to sit and visit with your friends – they have an assignment to do and you have a
       job to do. There is a fine line to be walked here. Many teachers are offended if they feel the library aides
       are distracting to their class/students.
    Student library aides are most often assigned jobs dealing with the circulation of books and other materials. These
       include shelving materials, stamping ownership, and working at the circulation desk.

       duties such as keeping books upright and in order on the shelves, arranging tables and chairs, dusting, and
