Librarian Assistant (Former Employee) –  Lexington, KYMarch 24, 2017
A great place to learn new skills and meet life long friends. Many opportunities to be a people person. Your work schedule is set but can be flexible with other employees taking on extra hours, just be ready to take on extra hours in return.

Okay Place to Work
Youth Program Coordinator (Current Employee) –  Lexington, ILSeptember 21, 2015
Management needs work. Little compensation, no benefits, expectations of working on your 'free' time and not getting paid, little leadership.

Great Place to work while figuring out if you want to go toM LIS
Young People's Associate (Former Employee) –  Lexington, KYJanuary 27, 2015
The Lexington public Library is a great place to work. Many of the benefits for Part-timers are that you will get a majority of major holidays off. Many of your co-workers are either in MLIS or deciding to get there MLIS so this is a great place to feel out if you are interested in becoming a librarian.

What a great place to work and learn
Page (Former Employee) –  Tates CreekSeptember 9, 2013
I so enjoyed my time at Lexington Public Library! I applied to be a part time Page. What a great place to work and learn! The managers were excellent. The workload is different than other local libraries because they have a team of Pages as opposed to the standard one or two at your common local rural libraries in Kentucky. They had several locations and sometimes I was able to get extra hours at other locations. If I lived closer I would work there again in a heartbeat!
Pros
atmosphere, management, fun, easy work
Cons
Limited positions, advancement
