Library volunteers needed for the 2017-18 school year! 

Books are always flowing in and out of the Adobe Bluffs library, and parent volunteers are essential to keeping our library organized and running smoothly.

Typical library jobs including checking in and shelving books, covering and repairing books, processing new books, and setting up and maintaining library stations.  

We would love to find some regular volunteers willing to assist in the running of the library.  If you are interested, or if there are other ways you would like to help in the library, please contact Susan Lingner by email at slingner@powayusd.com or by visiting the library.  Thank you so much!
