Consider applying for a library assistant position!
Since this role includes several tasks typical of library assistant positions in college and public libraries (e.g. customer service, circulating and processing books, etc.), being a library assistant at MLWGS may give you an edge when seeking a work-study assignment or part-time job in a library.
A special facet of this role at MLWGS will be for each library assistant to adopt a section of the collection that interests them (e.g. psychology, economics, poetry).
Library assistants may propose special projects related to an identified need in the library or to their adopted section, such as producing video tutorials, marketing the library on social media channels, facilitating a book discussion, designing a book display, writing book reviews or producing book trailers, or organizing a related activity.
Similar to student ambassadors, they may earn community service for any hours during which they are actively engaged in completing library assistant duties.
Through an application and interview process, I’ll select a small team of assistants. If you have questions or would like an application, please see me (Ms. DeGroat).
Applications are due by June 7, 2016.
