Libraries are an integral part of our communities. They are a place to learn, imagine and grow. As such, librarians are role models and educators that maintain the spirit of the library, keep order and guide visitors to the answers they seek. If you love working with the public and have a reverence for the written word, working in the library industry may be an excellent fit.
The Bureau of Labor Statistics tells us that while librarians are experiencing slower than average job growth, they still represent 11,000 new jobs in the next eight years. Work is generally full time, with an average salary of around $55,000 per year. For those with a passion for books, being surrounded by them in the peaceful sanctuary of a library is immensely rewarding.
Librarians have a strong grasp of the English language, which means your library resume must be grammatically correct, with proper punctuation and spelling. A master’s degree is usually required, so let your education take the top spot of your resume. Volunteer work can be helpful to replace paid work experience, so be sure to include that as well.
