Careers at BPL

Employment:

Brooks Public Library is now accepting applications for their 2023 Library Intern Position. Applicants are expected to have completed their MLIS degree within the 2022 calendar year and be available to begin in early January 2023. The successful applicant may be considered for a second year extension.

Brooks Public Library, within the Southeastern Alberta community of Brooks, is unique; large and busy enough to maintain all its standard services in-house, but small enough that employees workloads generally include cross-department responsibilities. The Library Intern Position has been structured to allow a new graduate to experience all aspects of public library service, from the circulation desk and programming to collection development and supervisory responsibilities. This position also provides the opportunity to tailor work experience to fit with future employment goals. Additionally, our small city is home to a vastly multicultural population, offering the successful applicant a chance to develop skills generally associated with larger centres.

Resumes with a cover letter will be accepted by email to brolib@shortgrass.ca until November 27th. Please include reference to the Job number “2023LI”.
