CLOSED We are hiring!

About the job:

  • Circulation Assistant
  • 12 hours per week; $15.45-$15.60 per hour
  • Starting schedule: Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays, 2:15pm-6:15pm (schedule may change over time as the library’s needs change; supervisors may ask for help covering other shifts, as needed)
  • Circulation Assistants spend most shifts working directly with patrons, coaching patrons on technology skills, checking materials in and out, shelving, and keeping the library tidy and safe.

Who are we looking for?

  • 18 years and older
  • Library experience is a plus, but not required. Other work skills are more important, like positive customer service skills, good computer and personal device skills, a knack for explaining technology skills clearly and patiently to patrons, the ability to communicate clearly, flexibility to move between different tasks throughout the day, and the ability to pay close attention to details. People with training as baristas, in retail, and mental health/social services backgrounds have found success in this position in the past.
  • Positive, team-oriented people who take pride in their work, are respectful and kind to coworkers and patrons, and enjoy working with our diverse community.
