    The Louisa Boren Library serves Louisa Boren STEM PreK-8 every weekday!

    Volunteer Opportunities
    We would love volunteers to check in books in the mornings and shelve books throughout the day. It is fulfilling to help students locate books and check them out, too! There are library tasks such as stamping books, adding bar codes and spine labels. We would love to match your skills with our needs. Please contact us.
