JOB OPENING: $20/hr Mobile Librarian – Free Bookmobile of Sonoma County
Part-Time (2 days/week, planned in advance and somewhat flexible, requires some weekend days)
The Free Bookmobile of Sonoma County has an upcoming opening for a part-time Mobile Librarian in its award-winning outreach program. The Free Bookmobile promotes literacy and love of reading by giving away high quality books throughout the region, especially seeking to serve children and seniors living in low-income and rural areas. This role involves driving our box-truck style bookmobile (about the size of a small RV) on scheduled routes throughout Sonoma County, providing excellent customer service to patrons of all ages as they browse the books, and generally being a strong advocate for reading. It also requires some hours restocking the bookmobile shelves between route days.
The position is approximately 2 days per week and requires some weekend availability. Schedules are made up to one month in advance so it’s relatively easy to plan the rest of your life around it. Shifts range from 7 - 10 hours each and are exempt from overtime up to 10 hours per day. It is a demanding job that will challenge your interpersonal skills and the rewards of working with the people we serve (all ages, races, income levels, from homeless to affluent) can be wonderful for the right person. Some ability with Spanish language preferred as we serve a large Latino population. The wage is $20/hour with no benefits offered.
The appropriate candidate will have:
• Enthusiasm for reading and learning
• A positive and friendly attitude
• Superior customer service skills
• Punctuality and general reliability
• Experience and success working with children
• Excellent driving skills and verifiable safety record (class C only required)
• Ability to lift and carry 40 pounds up and down stairs several times per day
• Known availability a month or more in advance
• Reliable transportation to rural west Sebastopol (our headquarters)
• Lots of energy – we often serve hundreds of patrons in a single shift
• Willingness to turn the phone off and work in an analog environment
• PREFERRED: Significant knowledge of book genres/authors and age-appropriate material for children
Local references and a DMV driving record printout are required as part of the interview process. Passing a Live Scan fingerprint criminal background check is required prior to hire.
The position is likely available for an early January start but this is dependent on the construction of our new bookmobile vehicle and mostly out of our control. We will not fill the position until we find the appropriate candidate. Only those who are a close fit for the criteria in this listing should apply. The successful applicant will need to pass a multi-session interview process, including a behind-the-wheel examination and observation of his/her on-site interactions with our patrons.
To apply, email a cover letter and resume (PDF format only or pasted into the email – other file types will not be opened) to Executive Director Glen Weaver. In the cover letter, please describe your interest in the position and how you match or exceed the required qualifications. For more information on our work, visit freebookmobile.org. The Free Bookmobile is a registered, independent 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. We are NOT affiliated with the Sonoma County Public Library system.
Thank you for your interest!
