Volunteer Oppportunities
The library is staffed by a certified teacher/librarian and volunteer parents. Volunteers assist students as they search for books, help check out books, shelve books, straighten book shelves, and get the opportunity to interact with many of the students and teachers. Some parents wish to volunteer for an hour while others are able to volunteer for a half day. If you are interested in learning more about volunteer opportunities, please contact Mrs. Kathy Sigman or your child's classroom teacher.
Library Procedures
All students are encouraged to borrow books and take advantage of the many resources in our library. Books may be checked out for one week and renewed for a second week if necessary. Students are asked to return their books on time so they may share the wonderful books with other students. If books become lost or damaged, a fine will be assessed so the book can be replaced. Library privileges may be suspended until books are returned or fines paid.

Students in Kindergarten and 1st Grade may check out one book each week.
Students in Grade 2-5 may check out 2 or 3 books each week.
Library Hours
The Roy G. Harrell Library at Bierbaum Elementary is open Monday through Thursday from 8:30 a.m. until 3:50 p.m. Students are scheduled to visit the library with their classes once each week, although students are always welcome to return or check out books at other times, with their teacher approval.
