More Than a Job

Library work may be the most challenging and rewarding work you’ll ever do. Whether you work in the public area or behind the scenes, you’ll be part of perhaps America’s greatest institution – the public library. Indeed the library is one of the few public spaces left where all of society can meet on equal ground.

The Metropolitan Library System values energetic, creative individuals who are dedicated to the mission of the public library and committed to providing outstanding customer service. Our employees are community-oriented and as diverse as the people we serve. If we’ve just described you, we invite you to join our team.




We recognize that healthy and satisfied employees are mission-critical. To that end, the Metropolitan Library System provides a wide range of benefits to support a healthy lifestyle, an equitable work-life balance, a rewarding career, and a secure future.


Rewarding Careers
The library system prizes continuing professional development and provides employees with numerous training opportunities through the Metro University program. Scholarships and membership in professional organizations is also subsidized. Cross-training, teamwork and cooperation among the system’s various departments and libraries is also encouraged.

Healthy Lifestyle
The Metropolitan Library System health plan provides affordable care for each eligible employee and family members including medical, dental, vision and prescription coverage.

Life-Work Balance
In addition to our generous amount of holidays and paid time off, the library system offers a number of other benefits to help create a healthy balance of personal and professional lives such as charitable staff volunteer opportunities.


Secure future
Beyond the health and wellness benefits offered, the Metropolitan Library System also provides a competitive retirement benefit through its 10% contribution to the employee’s retirement plan.
