Although she will be primarily at the Craigleith Heritage Depot site, she will be training at L.E. Shore for the month of April and will be a fill in person here as well. Two Casual Library Assistants will be hired for fill-in hours as needed to cover illness and vacation. A summer student CEO Assistant is open until April 20th. This position will work with the CEO for the summer to organize paper and electronic files of the organization. We anticipate posting for several other summer positions in the coming weeks.
