Careers at UAPL

Careers at The Upper Arlington Public Library

It's not about books; it's about people.

Through our daily interactions with our patrons and each other, we build connections that make lives better. Whether you are shelving books, answering the phone, showing someone how to download our app or put an item on hold, entertaining kids at storytime, or finding someone’s next great read, the joy of working at the public library is helping people. Even if you aren’t working directly with the public, you will have the opportunity to work closely alongside many supportive, passionate, and fun coworkers.

I love people but what else do I need to know about working at UAPL?

We care about you. We believe our staff are our most important asset, and we invest in you!

  • We care about your work / life balance. All employees receive prorated vacation, sick leave, and enjoy paid holidays. All of our part-time positions have a set schedule so that you know when you are scheduled to work each week and can apply for positions that work best with your availability.
  • We care about your professional development. We invest in developing your skills and knowledge through on the job training classes, workshops and conferences. We also provide extensive onboarding and training for all staff.
  • We care about your physical and mental health. We provide an Employee Assistance Program that provides free sessions for all staff. Full time employees are eligible to participate in a low deductible health care plan where the Library picks up the majority of the cost.
  • We care about staff engagement and appreciation. We have a dedicated Staff Appreciation Committee that focuses on welcoming new staff, providing engaging and fun opportunities. We enjoy frequent fun activities such as our annual Ice Cream Social and Teambuilding Day.
