Typical shift is about 3-4 hours. Very flexible hours. Easy to get time off. Atmosphere depends on location of library. I can get lots done working by myself or with others.

Working at the library would have never been an opportunity until I placed a resume a the branch. No one would ever assume working at the library would be sort of boring, but also fulfilling. Shelving books was my primary and main task during shifts and when there was free time doing small clean ups of books and pushing chairs in was more of a routine. Management doesn't care about the page position as it's not really important to the libraries success. At times, there will be a large amount of books to shelve and it will turn into a fast pace environment to get things done.

All in all, I would take this job back in a heart beat in my next life.

During orientation, I learned a lot and was ready to volunteer. The other workers are very supportive and helpful. They are easily ready to answer questions and concerns.

I am thoroughly enjoying my current experience as the Non-Fiction Selection Librarian; and have had a chance to work closely with a budget of $500,000 for London Public Library’s non-fiction and music collection. This position has been very instructional in collection development and maintenance. I have had the opportunity to work closely with publishing vendors, staff and patrons to provide a collection that is well received by the citizens of London.

In my previous roles I have been front line staff for fifteen years in a public library setting. This includes working with the community on school projects, questions of general interest, and volunteer projects. I am confident that my adaptability, flexibility, skills and abilities make me a valuable employee and member of the London Public Library
Pros
Never a chance to be bored!
Cons
some of the public can be rough to deal with in my current location

A typical day at work would consist of pulling books aside for holds, cataloging all the books in my designated section of the library, helping both elderly and young with picking/carrying books, closing the library, making sure the library was clean and organized. Management was absolutely amazing. The hardest part about the job was not been able to find particular books. The most enjoyable was the atmosphere.
Pros
free lunches, and great views
Cons
long days
