Library Assistants

Exploring This Job

While in high school, spend a good amount of time in your school or public library. Take notice of how materials are organized and handled from drop off to pick up. Just using your own library for school projects or perusing the aisles for new books will increase your knowledge of how libraries are organized and kindle your love for information. You may even want to ask if you can work part time in your school or public library as an assistant. Even just working on a volunteer basis will give you great experiences, including checking materials in and out at the circulation desk, working with patrons, shelving returned books, and working with book records.
