Part-time front desk clerk (Green Tree Public Library)


Green Tree Public Library, a progressive and busy library about three miles outside downtown Pittsburgh, is looking to hire a part-time front desk clerk. Do you like books? That’s great! Even more importantly, do you like PEOPLE? Because this job is all about meeting the needs of our diverse population.

Our front desk clerks are the face of the library. They do everything from unjamming printers and checking out materials to prepping crafts and answering questions about everything under the sun. We are looking for someone who can roll with the punches, someone who would never respond “I don’t know” to a question without elaborating and someone who recognizes that libraries are no longer the quiet, passive places of yesteryear. Computer skills, basic knowledge of literary trends and a sense of fun and friendliness are a must.

This is a part-time position for 12-16 hours a week at an hourly rate of $12.08.

The position requires working weekdays, evenings and some Saturdays; flexibility with scheduling is a must. The candidate who is selected will need to obtain PA Child Abuse/FBI Clearances and successfully pass a criminal background check before getting started. A high school diploma/GED is required. For the right person, this position provides an opportunity to gain library experience and join an award-winning team of library professionals.

To apply, please email your cover letter and resume with the subject line “clerk” to Adaena Tray, Library Director, at by May 25. No phone calls, please.
