Part Time
15 hours per week
$14.50 per hour
Position Description: 

Are you positive, dynamic, creative and community focused? We are looking for friendly and approachable people to join our staff as Library Assistants in our Branch and Access Services Department.

You will love this job if:

  • You are always looking for opportunities to make people feel welcome – at the library you would help customers check out material, register them for a library card, help them with a fee or assist them with copying and faxing.
  • You are fun and kid-friendly – you understand how to make people of all ages feel important and cared for at the library and would go out of your way to make sure everyone leaves with a smile on their face.
  • You take pride in your surroundings – you would make sure that our spaces are clean and tidy and our displays are refreshed.
  • You see the big picture – you understand when to jump in and help.
  • You see every decision you make and action you take as an opportunity to demonstrate our collective integrity.
  • You would prefer to be out on the floor with the library customers helping them with all of their needs, rather than be behind a desk.
  • You know your way around technology – you have the ability to explain basic computer skills and new media to users.
  • You are an avid reader, viewer and/or listener and enjoy sharing your favorites.
  • You have an optimistic attitude – you believe that anything is possible.

This job requires a high school diploma; some college is preferred.  Two years experience working in a library, retail and/or hospitality setting is strongly preferred. Evening and weekend availability is required. Shifts average 4 to 5 hours, and can be on any service desk at any of our three locations.

Please send a completed resume with cover letter to: Martyn Churchouse, Assistant Manager for Branch and Access Services at not later than April 15, 2016.
