Virtual Winter Storytime

Sign your kids up for this story, craft and snack session. The library is offering two virtual Story Hours — one at 10:30 a.m. and the second at 1:30 p.m. Miss Trisha will read stories that go with the themes: penguins and polar bears; Winter sports and children’s author, Mo Willems. Storytime packages can be picked up the week before each storytime. You will receive an email reminder with a link to story time and a list of things you need to complete the craft in the package (scissors, glue, etc.). Call (574) 658-4312 and register your children for story time today.

Part-time job offers

Like many other businesses during COVID, the library has experienced a staff shortage. The library has two part-time openings. Both are 29 hours per week and start at $9 per hour. One evening (until 8 p.m.) per week and at least one Saturday per month are required. The first position is in the children’s department. Duties would include being a partner in story time and taking care of any delays.

The second position is for a shared clerk, which means you will work two days upstairs in the adult and teen departments and three days in the children’s department. You will learn how to catalog children’s materials and promote library services through newspaper articles and social media. Applications are being accepted now. Apply at the adult loan counter.
