We have two part-time clerk positions (25 hours or less) now available at the Bell Memorial Public Library in Mentone, IN.

The first one is especially for High School students with hours mostly in the evenings and weekends.  The second position is primarily days with hours mostly from 11:00 – 2:00.

Library Clerks do a small amount of many jobs around the Library such as answering the telephone, making photocopies, sending/receiving faxes, checking in/out Library materials, putting away and retrieving materials for Library Patrons.

Computer or Library experience is NOT required. Customer Service and Satisfaction is the Library’s main goal and that is what we train our employees to deliver.

Please contact Stephen Boggs, Library Director, at (574) 353-7234 or via e-mail using the address above or by clicking here.
