Major work responsibilities include performing circulation duties, serving patrons and the public, performing collection maintenance activities, and performing miscellaneous duties. Library Assistant Is differ from Library Assistant IIs in that IIs are expected to act in the place of absent staff, including librarians, in various branches throughout the library system. Is are typically assigned to one branch and/or department at a time and work under the direct supervision of a librarian. Library Assistant Is report directly to a librarian.
