Cortland Free Library seeks a full-time

From the Little Pig House to Storytimes with Miss Tammy to the Summer Reading Game Wall to the thousands of books in our collection to the knowledgeable people behind the desk, our Youth Services area (located in the Lower Level of Cortland Free Library and with its own entrance on Court Street) is filled with inspirational, educational, and memory-making opportunities.

We’re looking for a friendly, creative Youth Services Library Assistant to join the team!

Are you a social media user who loves finding new ideas on Pinterest and Tik Tok and posts regularly on Facebook and Instagram?

Your time at the library will also be filled with some of the duties of our Circulation Desk Assistants (checking items in and out; helping patrons find items; placing items on hold), with an emphasis on customer service, marketing and assisting with our YS Librarian’s needs (may include helping develop programs, assistance with reporting, etc.)

Hours are full-time, Monday through Friday, approximately 9 to 5, with some evenings and weekends. Starting pay is $15/hour. This position is open until filled.
