Job Description for Library Assistant

Library assistants participate in all aspects of library circulation and patron service duties. Their primary responsibility is to ensure all patron needs are met. This includes assisting patrons in general library services such as signing up for library cards, using the library catalog, and navigating the library’s various areas. They answer basic circulation and reference questions and assist patrons in finding materials they are searching for, as well as direct patrons to reference librarians for more complex questions. They may troubleshoot library equipment such as computers, copiers, and printers if they malfunction. Library assistants check in and check out materials and manage hold requests, as needed. They return materials to their proper location on the shelves, and occasionally “shelf read” to check that material on the shelves are in the correct order. Library assistants may help to open or close the library, depending on their schedule.
