Volunteer Opportunity, Boston Arts Academy/Fenway High School Library, Boston MA
posted December 9, 2013 3:57 PM
Volunteers are welcome to assist the library director and associates. No library experience is required and lots of experience in a busy, urban high school library is acquired. Depending on circumstances, volunteers are hired as library associates. The expectation is that a volunteer comes on a regular basis for a two to three hour block, usually on a weekly basis, but this could be more. This oportunity is only available to individuals currently enrolled in a GSLIS program.
The BAA/Fenway Library is located in the school building across from Fenway Park's Gate B at 174 Ipswich Street. Volunteers assist students and faculty members with reference, learn to manage the circulation system, can generate web pages, perform original cataloging and other school library tasks. Volunteers are encouraged to try on different roles, from instruction to collection development. These roles could meet coursework requirements, as well. The successful candidate will be able to apply these skills in a range of other library settings.
