Library Activities Eligible for NEHS Volunteer Hours (Please note: these opportunities are offered on a first-come, first-served basis):

Book Reviews:  Write brief one to two paragraph reviews of new books in the Jamestown Library that can be displayed in the library, on the library webpage and in the library catalog.  Reviews of classics and/or books that are read in English classes at JHS will not be accepted.  Students may choose to review ficion or nonfiction books. Ask the librarians where new books are displayed.  Reviews should give an idea of what the book is about, the genre and your opinion/recommendation and be grammatically correct. 1 hour for every two reviews.  Submit as a Word document in your network folder or thumbdrive.

Book Displays: Create a thematic display of books.  Displays can be tied to events (Earth Day), interests (surfing), author, or genre.  This is limited only by your imagination!  Use the library catalog to find books that reflect the theme and highlight with colorful mini-posters, quotes etc.  One successful display featured a playlist and images from one book.  1 hour, more depending on size of display, and students can create up to (but no more than) 4 displays. Students may use the library color printer or print at home. *Please note: students will need to sign up in the library for their desired month.  Limited to 4 displays per month.

Book Trailers: Create 1-3 minute video trailers of new books using moviemaker, Imovie, etc.  for the library webpage. There are many examples on YouTube.  Submit as wmv or mpg files on student drive or thumbdrive. One hour per trailer.

Shelf Reading: Use a list to check that books are shelved appropriately.  In library only.  Hours as worked.

Twitter and Facebook:  Follow the library’s Twitter @JMSTNLibrary  and Jamestown High School Library on Facebook for different volunteer opportunities as they arise and to attend posted events .  Earn volunteer hours for attendance at featured events in town (lectures, author visits, etc.)
