The Prince George Public Library is looking for a dynamic people-person to work part-time as an Interim Library Assistant for Collections. This position is part of a collaborative team that supports efforts to develop and maintain the library’s physical and digital collections using a limited budget. This individual participates in the selection, weeding, evaluation, and promotion of library materials in accordance with the strategic priorities of the organization and in alignment with established spending plans. In addition, the individual routinely works at service delivery points to provide reference, readers’ advisory, referral, and basic account services to patrons in-person, over the phone, or virtually. The position also plays an important role in facilitating public access to materials from other library systems through the daily handling of assigned interlibrary loan service tasks.
This individual helps to expand the library’s reach and maximize the library’s ability to understand and respond to the distinct needs and interests of adults and seniors, and particularly those from historically marginalized populations including Black, Indigenous and people of colour, 2SLGBTQ+, immigrants, and those facing accessibility barriers.
The library is a fast-paced, high-pressure environment. This role includes both evening and weekend shifts.
The incumbent contributes to the maintenance of a respectful and inclusionary workplace, meeting expectations that adhere to the B.C. Privacy Guidelines, and the library’s quality standards, policies, and procedures.
