Did you know Gympie Regional Libraries recruit school students as junior library assistants?
Working at a library gives students an incredible opportunity to gain valuable work experience and learn the importance of providing great customer service.
Junior library assistants perform a variety of exciting and rewarding tasks that benefit our community, including assisting customers to locate library resources, conducting online information searches, shelving library materials and supporting senior staff to run library programs and events.
Junior library assistant positions will be advertised in October to work at the Gympie and Tin Can Bay libraries and will be advertised through school newsletters and on Gympie Regional Council’s website.
Customers are using the Check-in Qld App as well as the library membership cards to comply with Council’s COVID SAFE PLAN.
Library events – there’s even some trivia!
