The Importance of Student Workers

Continuing our Learn About Your Library series, today we are highlighting our Student Workers.  The slogan for National Library Workers Day is “Libraries Work Because We Do” and student workers are definitely a key part of that work.  So today on National Library Workers Day we want to give a special THANKS to our student workers.

So what exactly to student workers do here at the library?  Almost every department in the library has at least one student worker whether they are undergrad, grad or interns so it’s a long list, but here are some of the highlights…

  • Shelve books/magazines/journals/DVDs/audiobooks and more
  • Shelf Read to help keep the books in order so you can find what you’re looking for
  • Bring up the daily newspapers for your perusing pleasure
  • Help with computer issues and keep our many technologies running smoothly
  • Staff the front desk to answer your questions and check out books
  • Prepare the gift book room for our annual Book Sale during Homecoming Week
  • Help patrons with genealogy research in the archives

This list could be a mile long, so we’ll stop there. So to our student workers, thanks for EVERYTHING that  you do!
