Library Jobs and Volunteer Opportunities

Shelver Position

Do you have an eye for detail and like organizing? If you are self-motivated and take pride in a job done well, then apply to be a Shelver. The Stoughton Public Library periodically seeks Shelvers to put away library materials.

Applicants must be at least 16 years old and be able to work 3-hour shifts during library hours. Starting wage is $8.90 per hour with no benefits.

The Library is an Equal Opportunity Employer.

Library Substitute

We are not currently seeking any library substitutes, but check back for future job postings.

Qualified candidates must have at least 1 year of previous library experience. We are especially interested in candidates who are familiar with the Bibliovations ILS and who are available to work weekday mornings and/or afternoons.

Volunteer at the Library

We are not currently seeking new volunteers.

If you'd like to volunteer at the library when we have openings in the future, please fill out an application (Word or PDF) and turn it in at one of our service desks. We evaluate potential adult volunteers on an ongoing, as-needed basis.

Teens looking for a summer volunteer opportunity, please stop by the Children's Department on or before April 15 of the year you wish to volunteer. Teen volunteers must be in grades 7-12 (or entering 7th grade in the upcoming fall). We are not seeking any teen volunteers for Summer 2021, unfortunately.
