Library Manager President
Be a Volunteer!
SPECTRUM is built on the hard work and dedication of our volunteers. From the volunteer Board of Directors, to event organizers and group facilitators, to special projects, research, staffing drop-in hours, administrative work and much more, nothing happens at SPECTRUM not created by volunteer work.
The Library Managers will have the opportunity to organize and coordinate many important administrative tasks. This includes creating brief cataloguing information for the backlog of uncatalogued books and for any new acquisitions & ensuring that the materials on the shelf are in order by scanning them every couple of months.
Library Managers will also be responsible for verifying that materials are returned in a timely fashion, suggesting possible purchases, and devising strategies for promoting the use of these resources. Preexisting skills such as organization, communication, assessment and planning will not only be practiced thoroughly with this position but will enhance over the course of volunteering with SPECTRUM!
Volunteers for this position must be either professional librarians or library technicians.
SPECTRUM maintains a library of around 700 books and 270 videos for the benefit of the local LGBTQ community. By providing your valuable time and effort, you will be enhancing the library experience for all visitors!
Cataloguing might take 4 hours per month. The time commitment for other tasks varies, ranging from 2 hours per month to a total of 5 hours per month. The tasks do not have to be performed by one person.
We are asking for a commitment to this position of at least 7 months.
Library managers will work with experienced staff to learn the procedures.
