Greetings to all students as we get ready for the Fall Semester!

We're getting ready and you should too!  If you have a federal workstudy award and are interested in working on campus in the library, then don't wait, apply as soon as possible.  You can come in, pick up an application, fill it out, and turn it in on the spot.

However, if you're not currently on campus, or are just technologically inclined and would like to type it out, don't worry, we can oblige you as well! We have three departments which are currently hiring: Circulation, Information Commons, and Technical Services. Please click on the appropriate link to see the job description.

To apply, please fill out the application* and either email it to Erik Gregory at EGregory@stmartin.edu or print it out and bring it directly to the O'Grady Library.

*Please note, to fill out on your computer, you will need to download the file first by clicking the file button above the pdf and selecting download.

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to call Erik directly at 360-486-8811 or the main library number at 360-486-8800. Good luck and happy job hunting!
