SLAB (Student Library Advisory Board)


Katya Fuksenko

Students love going to the media center, either to study, read, for some peace and quiet, and just to check out books! Well there is one club that helps organize the Media Center, it’s called the Student Library Advisory Board (SLAB). They meet every other Thursday, they help shelve books, keep the books in order on the shelves, they help set up bulletin boards and help prepare library promotions like Blind Date with a Book and Teen Read Week. The students who go can get SSL hours for each time they come! Students can sign up from the beginning of the year, but after December they don’t accept new members since Mrs.Frasure has to train them. 8th grade SLAB members can help with morning book check out if they arrive early. Ms. Frashure got the idea to form the club from other middle school media specialists. She liked that students have a chance to get a say in what happens in the library and have ownership.
