Student Employment

Student employees are vital to providing Library Services

Over 30 students are employed by the library in many positions and offices. We offer work experience at the Library that will help to prepare students for future career opportunities. Students learn time management, responsibility, gain leadership and earn money to help finance educational costs. Students develop strong work habits and job skills and have an excellent resource for future job references. The student employment experience enables students to explore career options, discover strengths and weaknesses, likes and dislikes, and to see how academic learning applies to the world of work.
