Jobs for Students

The library hires Pages to keep materials organized in all of our branches, and at our Central Branch, to assist in preparing new materials for the shelves.

A Page is a student who provides efficient and pleasant customer service, shelves library items, shelf-reads to keep items on shelves in order, processes library materials, and makes sure the library is tidy by clearing tables and assisting with closing routines. There may be a few more duties involved such as attending Page meetings, or pulling some materials from lists.

If you are a student who has completed Grade 8, is available in the evening and on weekends, gets along with people of all ages, is responsible and trustworthy, and demonstrates accuracy and attention to detail, then this may be the job for you!
