Circulation Clerk/Switchboard Operator

Wilmette Public Library is looking for two individuals to work part-time at both the Circulation desk and at Switchboard.

Candidates should have a strong attention to detail, the ability to remain composed and helpful at all times, and a steadfast commitment to providing patrons with the highest level of service.

Successful candidates will be expected to work both positions. As well as some weekday 9:00-5:30 hours, regular evening and weekend hours will be required (including some Friday and Sunday evenings). The flexibility to substitute at short notice is an added bonus.

Both positions involve bending and lifting. The Switchboard position involves making public announcements in the Library.

If you are interested in joining our busy, welcoming library, please email a cover letter, your résumé, and the details of three references to:

Luciano Ward
Circulation Department Supervisor
