Recruitment #17-CI7135-01

Nature of Work

The fundamental reason this classification exists is to provide clerical and paraprofessional support to librarians. Major work responsibilities include performing circulation duties, serving patrons and the public, performing collection maintenance activities, and performing miscellaneous duties. Library Assistant Is differ from Library Assistant IIs in that IIs are expected to act in the place of absent staff, including librarians, in various branches throughout the library system. Is are typically assigned to one branch and/or department at a time and work under the direct supervision of a librarian. Library Assistant Is report directly to a librarian.

Minimum Qualifications

High school diploma or GED and six months full-time library page experience shelving books in a library branch.
