Types of Positions at the Library
Pages: Our Pages keep the library running by making sure the books are where they’re supposed to be. Pages spend most of their time shelving items, but they also organize the shelves, look for lost books, and pull books people have placed on reserve. They assist with checkout and other tasks that happen behind the service desk. This is a physical job that keeps people on their feet all day crouching, reaching, and pushing around carts of books. Pages must be at least 16 years old.
Clerks: Our Clerks have primary responsibility for checking out and returning books, they help people manage their library accounts, and they do a lot of work getting new books ready to go out on the shelves. This is a job that requires people to be on their feet for extended periods of time and involves lots of face-to-face interaction with coworkers and the public. Clerks must have graduated from high school or obtained an equivalency diploma.
Library Assistants: Our Library Assistants help patrons find books and information, create displays, run events and classes, build our book collections, and teach patrons how to use technology effectively. This is a job that involves a lot of people time. Library Assistants must have a Bachelor’s degree from a regionally accredited college or university.
Librarians: Our Librarians do everything our Library Assistants do. Librarians also have additional subject or age-level expertise, run departments, and train and manage staff. Librarians must have a Master’s Degree in Library and Information Science from a library school accredited by the American Library Association.
