We seek people with library experience to fill short-term assignments at libraries throughout Massachusetts in areas including (but not limit to) circulation, reference, children and youth services, management, cataloging and archives. Assignments may range from one day substitutions to multi-month interim placement

  • Unemployed or underemployed library workers
  • Part-time workers in need of additional hours

Screening interviews are the best way for us to get to know more about you, your background, and your interests. They are also an opportunity for you to learn more about BiblioTemps and complete the paperwork necessary to add you to our pool of temps actively eligible for placement.
