Parent, Student and Staff Volunteers Always Needed!
Volunteers are welcome to visit during class times to assist with student book selections and check out. Also, we have a high volume of books returned every day, so assistance with shelving is always welcome. Stop by and let me know if you are interested in volunteering.
Eileen Falcone, MLS
I have been a proud member of the Green Elementary community since the 2013 - 2014 school year.
After receiving my MLS at SUNY University at Albany, I worked in corporate libraries for many years, including those at Kraft Foods, Pepsi Cola, and John Deere. I also worked for a time in a hospital library. Eventually, I received a post-masters Certificate to be a school librarian from UNC Chapel Hill - and found my true calling!
Outside of work, I enjoy nature study, going to concerts, playing my violin, traveling (especially to Ireland), reading, and most of all, spending time with my family. My husband and I have two college-age sons, and one very cute Corgi mix dog named Joker.
