No room for growth/ no support to front line employees
Page (Current Employee) –  Cuyahoga County, OHApril 25, 2017
As a library page, you are responsible for organizing books, emptying book drops, shelving books and upkeep inside and outside of the building. There are no benefits. There is no support from management. No room for advancement.

Engaging job with great management and coworkers
Page (Current Employee) –  Bedford, OHMarch 22, 2017
Average work day involves reshelving material such as books, magazines, CDs, and DVDs, and finding and preparing items on shelves to ship to other local library branches. Great managers and coworkers. Time goes quickly, and even on slower days, there's always something to do

Relaxed, stable atmosphere
Page Non-Bargaining Unit (Former Employee) –  Solon, OHApril 30, 2016
Very good work environment, obligations were communicated well and all co-workers were very friendly. The job was very simple, and remained consistent throughout the entirety of my employment. The shifts were rather short, and most days were uneventful, given the atmosphere. Customer service is key, as I was often approached by patrons wondering where to find certain types of books. Very enjoyable experience, I very much cherished my co-workers.
Pros
Friendly environment, relaxed atmosphere, lenient
Cons
Little variety, simplistic responsibilities

What I learned
Library Assistant (Former Employee) –  Independence, OHJuly 3, 2013
I learned about the Dewey decimal system. It was hard to learn the system but I eventually got the hang of it. I love reading and hope to become a writer one day. I admit that working in a library would be a great job. Books can take you anywhere and are an excellent source of knowledge.
