Librarian job descriptionPost Job

A capable librarian working at one of these book and media sanctuaries is an essential part of it and organises it to ensure it is up to date and all materials are easily retrievable
A good librarian also offers pertinent advice to students on research and education queries and puts up displays that promote the library and its contents. Additional duties may involve running an after-hours book club, contributing recommendations for the purchase of new books and resources, and maintaining the facility’s database.
