Are you a people person and enjoy working with the public?

The Morristown & Morris Township Library is seeking a friendly, customer service-oriented person to join our creative and dedicated staff as a Library Assistant in the Media Department.  The person in this position helps patrons at our Media desk with checking out Library materials, helping patrons on Library public computers, checking in periodicals, reshelving audio-visual materials, emptying the Media drop and other tasks.

Are you creative and have good ideas?

New ideas are always welcome and staff in the Media Department also work on projects such as book displays, fliers and other creative tasks.  A creative person who can work independently, but also work as a part of a great team here at the Library fits really well in this position.

Have you ever wanted to work in a vibrant and historic downtown area? 

Our Library is located in the heart of historic Morristown near many cultural and historical attractions and a wide array of dining and nightlife.  As a result, the Library receives many visitors, and we have active participation with our residents and local businesses, both in person and virtually.  

What is the Library looking for in a candidate?

The ideal candidate will have great customer service experience, can work with a variety of software (MS Office Suite, Google Suite, etc.) and web browsers.  Candidates will need a high school diploma, but some college coursework is desirable.  The candidate will do some shelving and moving of collection materials and must be able to push book carts and lift up to ten pounds.  Fluency in Spanish is a big plus, as is knowledge of the working of libraries.  The Library is busy!  We are looking for someone who enjoys staying active and learning new things and can work some evening and weekend shifts.

What are the perks for working at the Library?

This is a part-time position, 10 hours per week that includes some evenings and weekends.      

The wage is $15.00/hr. and the position includes some paid holidays and sick time. 

The Library strives to honor the broadest range of identities and diverse social and historical experiences expressed in our communities, and are an organization of information professionals dedicated to empowering others to access, interpret, and create.  We do this by intentionally developing a vibrant collection of print and electronic resources and virtual and in-person programming that reflects and celebrates the diversity of Morristown and Morris Township.  EOE
