The employment opportunities at Gold Coast Public Library vary, and applications are accepted continuously.
The Library fills full-time positions, when available, through the Nassau County Civil Service position. Individuals must take a civil service test to become eligible on the Librarian I, Clerk, and Clerk-Typist list. Announcements for these examinations are posted on the Nassau Civil Service Commission website at: http://www.nassaucivilservice.com
Part-time employment does require taking an exam to be placed on a certified list, but civil service regulations do limit part-time jobs to less than 17.25 hours per week.
“Page” positions (book shelvers), are part-time and do not require an exam.
