Philips Library Volunteer

Department: LIBRARY
Location: Rowley, MA

Phillips Library Volunteers perform tasks related to operating the library and providing the best possible services and products to our communities of researchers and readers. Volunteers may help out in a variety of ways depending on their interests and skills, and the current needs and goals of the library. Volunteer tasks can include answering reference questions, creating and editing metadata for digitization, indexing materials, transcribing handwriting manuscripts, searching the library catalog and assisting with social media posts and marketing materials.

Volunteers are scheduled at least one half day per week, intended for a one year commitment at PEMís Collection Center in Rowley, Massachusetts. Volunteering remotely may be considered in the appropriate circumstances.

A high school diploma is required and previous experience with, and interest in, libraries and/or special collections is a plus. Strong communication skills and attention to detail are preferred. Some tasks require the ability to use a computer and/or a tablet. Volunteers may be exposed to fragile paper-based materials where dust and dormant mold could be likely.

PEM is committed to enhancing diversity in its staff, volunteers, visitors, exhibitions and programs while promoting an inclusive environment. We seek candidates who can contribute to that goal and encourage you to apply and to identify your strengths in these areas.
