Equal Opportunity Employer

Equal Employment Opportunity is a fundamental principle at the Coloma Public Library, where employment opportunities are based on job qualifications without discrimination based on race, color, religion, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, age, national origin, veteran status, disability, height, weight, familial status, marital status or any other characteristic protected by applicable law.

We respect the diversity that exists within our Coloma community and among our employees, and strive to maintain a workplace culture based on inclusiveness where respect, equity and positive recognition of differences are cultivated.

What happens after you apply

We know that once you submit the application, you'll be eager to hear back. We are also eager to find our awesome new team-mate! However, we expect to receive quite a few applications and it will take some time to sort through them.

We will acknowledge receipt of your packet so you know we have it. Once we've gone through the packets, we will reach out to applicants for interviews.

After the interviews are completed, all candidates will be notified of the status of the position.

The process may take several weeks overall.

We meet so many delightful people in interviews, but only have one slot to fill. If you are not selected for the job, please consider applying for another opportunity in the future.
