Jobs for Librarians
Our reference librarians are generalists with a wide range of knowledge, but they may have special expertise in one or more subjects as well. Technical librarians work behind the scenes, where they select, catalog and care for books and other materials. Many of our staff members are fluent in languages other than English, which helps us serve our diverse community.
There are no positions for Librarians available at this time.
Please check back to see future opportunities.
Jobs for non-Librarians
Many essential jobs within the Library do not require a library degree, and those positions range from administrative professionals and support staff, information technology professionals, drivers who transport books and other materials, to workers who maintain our buildings and grounds, and security officers who keep patrons and staff free from harm.
