It may be a few days before this hits the city website, but we have a
Children's Clerk position available at the Wilsonville Public Library.
We are mainly looking for someone to help out with Storytime: planning,
set-up, performing, and clean-up.  We have 3 Storytimes weekly, Tuesday
evenings and Wednesday and Thursday mornings.  We have approximately
30-40 kids plus parents in the evening, and 60-80 kids plus parents each
morning, so we need someone very comfortable in front of large groups.
We do have two staff members at each Storytime, so you won't have to go
it alone.


If you know someone who might be interested, please pass this
announcement along.  We'd love to have someone in place when Storytime
gets going again at the beginning of September.
