Adult Services Librarian, Part-time

On more than one occasion, librarians at the Greenwood Public Library have uttered the words, "I can't believe I get to do this every day."  We've also argued over who can fit into a Pete the Cat costume and love to play the super fun game of "Do you think someone in the building will have a rather obscure object in their office?"  Spoiler.  Someone almost always does.

Greenwood Public Library is seeking an enthusiastic, dynamic, and visionary leader to provide high-quality customer service to adults 20 hours per week.  Your experience and ingenuity will be a vital part of our Adult Services team.  If helping patrons find their next favorite read, collecting a thoughtfully curated collection, and planning smile-inducing programs is your passion, this might be the job for you.
