Parent Help in the Library - can you help?

There is a small group of parents who volunteer in the Onslow College Library for 25 minutes during the morning tea break each day. This allows the library staff to go to morning tea with the rest of the staff.  We are currently looking for more people to join our group of volunteers. Can you help? Could you cover the 25 min slot one morning a fortnight? Or, if you are really keen you are welcome to help out weekly! If you would like to help in the Library or you have any questions,  I would love to hear from you.Please email stacey.ruscoe@gmail.com or phone me on 0272481674.Thanks very much.Stacey RuscoeOnslow College PTA Library Co-ordinator
