New staff for the library!

We were incredibly fortunate last Tuesday night, when Mansfield voters approved a town budget that includes funds for two new part time staff positions. We'd been seeking these positions since 2000. Positions funded were those of a reference librarian who will work two evenings per week and several Saturdays a month, complimenting our full time reference librarian's hours. We are open 58 hours a week during October through April, and will now provide reference service 49 hours a week. The other position is that of a "page" for 15 hours per week. Pages are responsible for shelving library materials and processing materials for circulation (putting on covers, attaching spine labels, etc). The new page will be assigned to the technical services, adult, and juvenile departments to assist with page activities in those areas.
