The Town of Falmouth is seeking a part-time Library Assistant for our Falmouth Public Library (FPL) Children’s Room.  We are very pleased to be adding an energetic, creative, and welcoming group of professionals to the Children’s Room this month, and the successful candidate for this position will complete our new youth services team.

The part-time Library Assistant position is eligible for Town benefits and works 20 hours per week, including some Saturday and evening hours, primarily in the Children’s Room at the Main Library, with some schedule flexibility.  This position may also cover other public service desks at all three library locations, including the FPL’s North and East branches.

This position provides comprehensive customer service to patrons who are primarily children, birth through age 12, their caregivers, teachers, and other patrons who work with children.  Additional duties include but are not limited to checking materials in and out of the library, registering and reserving materials for patrons, room displays, and periodically performing more complex circulation functions.  This position may also assist with other activities in the Children’s Room and the library, including programming and re-shelving books.
