The mission of the Prince George's County Memorial Library System is to help customers discover and define opportunities that shape their lives. To accomplish this, we look for enthusiastic, customer service oriented employees to join our staff. We offer a very comprehensive benefits package - even to our part-time salaried employees - and a casual but professional work environment. Our System consists of 19 community branch libraries of different sizes throughout Prince George’s County, Maryland which allow opportunities for information staff to work either in an age-level specialty (such as an adult, teen or children’s department) or serve all age groups (a generalist branch). We have over 300 salaried positions - enough to have room for development, change and potential advancement but small enough to allow for input from all staff members. We are committed to the spirit and intent of EEO law. Join our group of dedicated professionals providing a critical service to the public.
