McArthur Public Library, located in Biddeford, Maine, is currently
accepting applications for a part-time Reference Assistant (Adult Services).

Biddeford is located just 20 minutes south of Portland and is now the
youngest city in Maine. Portland Press Herald recently wrote "A renaissance
here has drawn a flood of fresh faces and businesses, making the
municipality's median age plunge."  Even more recent downtown development
(during and post-COVID) has created a surge of new faces in the library!

Come join our team during an exciting time in our community's history. Our
library continues to be a busy and vibrant downtown hub, and we are a fun
bunch!



Primary responsibilities of this role are:


   - Providing assistance to patrons, including reader’s advisory,
   reference/information requests (in-person and online), and technological
   assistance (including with public computers, as well as fax/copy/scanning);
   - Staffing the Information Desk in the Adult Room with regular shifts
   under the supervision of the Adult Services Librarian/Supervisor;
   - Assisting with several library programs a month.



The ideal candidate should be flexible and energetic with a positive
attitude, welcoming demeanor, and experience with technology, social media,
and devices. Please have a fantastic sense of humor. Previous library
experience is a big plus!



The position will be approximately 15-20+ hours a week, at least one
evening weekly and at least one Saturday monthly.  Additional flexible
hours may be available when needed to cover extra busy times during
programs, after holidays or staff absences.



The hourly wage range starts at $15.50/hour, depending on experience.



Applications will be accepted until the position is filled. To apply,
please submit a cover letter and resume to Melanie Taylor Coombs, Adult
Services Librarian/Supervisor at: [log in to unmask]



A full position description will be posted on our vacancies page as of
8/24/21.
