Library IWEs 2014-2015

Library Proctors/MouseSquad

 Students enrolled in Independent Work Experience form the core of the Willard Library's work staff. These highly-trained and enthusiastic 7th and 8th grade students support their fellow classmates by helping circulate and shelve library materials, assist students with finding books, and help with technology needs throughout the school.  It is only with their able assistance that the rest of the library staff is able to focus on teaching and collection development.  All students can apply to be part of MouseSquad when they select electives for their 7th or 8th grade year.
