We have a large number of responsible and reliable Hub 5 (Year 5 & 6) students who take on the roll of librarian.
Here are some quotes from our librarians -
My role as a librarian is to...
1. Issue, return and shelve the books
2. Be a role model
3. Help people in the library
...take a role of leadership and it's also actually a lot of fun. I love being a librarian even though I'm new to the job. Probably my favourite part is the librarian awards! (Atrisa)
... treat others with respect and to help people think that being a librarian is cool (which it is!). I have always admired librarians from a young age - you see my sister was a librarian and I always visited the library - plus I am helping the school. (Harper)
...help the kids that need helping ....and you have lots of fun while doing it. Plus you can tick something off your Bell Challenge as well!). (Kendra)
...do with reading. If I wanted to I would buy the whole library! (Quinn)
..be a responsible and organised person. I am always there for my duty. I love helping others find good books to read. I want others to be more interested in reading. I always make sure everyone tidies up after themselves. (Aanya)
...encourage others to find books they're interested in...I really enjoy seeing people reading the books! (Parvathy)
...make sure the library is quiet, tidy and in the situation that I would wish it to be when I visit. In my opinion the library is a treasure that we need to look after. (Nour)
...scan books and as a librarian I can borrow as many books as I like. It's being responsible for doing a job and I like that. (Dylan)
...help others and commit to do a job - the library is the best place to do that. (Katherine)
...helping little kids. I enjoy doing librarian meetings and working with others or helping the community. (Phoebe)
...help out the school and step up. I am still learning new things but I really enjoy this leadership role. (Thea)
...love to help people and love books! (Nuhaik)
...like books. When I was in Hub 4 I got to be a librarian and it was really fun so this year I decided to be a school librarian. (Emma)
...love to read! I also LOVE to read books to younger kids. When I'm old enough I want a part time job working in a library or being a librarian. (Kaitlin)
...be a role model. As a Year 6 I felt I should be a role model to those younger than me and a librarian does many things to help younger children. I can be a role model to them by showing them how to be responsible, respectful and many other things.
...have a lot of fun helping juniors with their books. (Josie)
...work in a joyful space. I come to the library feeling like I have a big job to do. Having a responsibility like this means the whole school depends on us being there. (Tabby)
...love your job and never want to pick a different one! (Charli)
