Job Description
Are you passionate about serving and empowering the community? Do you value building positive experiences for library clients? Do you strive to be part of a team that creates belonging and inclusion within the library? Then this role is for you!

Libraries are about people. Serving our community is at the heart of what we do. Pickering Public Library has an on-call job opening for a tech savvy client experience expert to work on the front line serving clients as a Casual Team Member. Under the direction of the Operations Coordinator, the successful candidate will be responsible for creating a welcoming client-focused experience at the library. The incumbent will need access to their own transportation/vehicle for occasional shifts at the rural branch as there is no public transit to this area. Casual staff members advise and assist clients with their informational and technology needs, register clients for programs and library cards, and check books in and out for clients. Casual staff members are trained to provide client service in the reference and the borrower services points in the library as scheduled.

Casual staff members are called in to work “as needed” to fill in scheduling gaps (i.e. for staff absences) on an on-call basis, usually with minimal notice. Flexibility to work on short notice is a requirement for this role. The ideal candidate will be a friendly, positive, and approachable individual who is alert and actively seeks ways to anticipate the needs of all library clients.
