Library Page Positions

Library pages shelve materials and must be able to move a 60-pound book cart, reach, stoop, and bend. Positions are year around, 10 to 19 hours per week, Sunday through Saturday. These are non-merit positions. The hourly wage is $11.50.

You must be at least 14 years old to apply to be a library page.

You must apply online. Here are the steps:

  1. Complete the online application and upload resume on the Montgomery County Government Careers website. Look for the Library Page position under the category Temporary/Seasonal/Substitute.
  2. Once you have applied, your account will include the current Library Page position under your "Jobs Applied For" section. Print out a copy of your account that includes your name and the positions that you applied for which must include the current Library Page position, and bring it with you to the page assessment exercise.
  3. Prepare for your in-person written assessment exercise, which checks your understanding of library shelving systems. Practice with this sample assessment exercise, then take one of the scheduled assessment exercises. You do not need an appointment, but you MUST have submitted an application online and received a confirmation email in order to take the assessment exercise. You can take the assessment at any branch, regardless of where you wish to work.
  4. Bring with you to the assessment exercise:
    • a print-out of your Jobs Applied For, including your name and the current Library Page positon
    • a photo ID

Note: You are eligible to apply and take the assessment exercise one time per requisition IRC. If you are not successful on the assessment, you will need to wait until the next requisition is posted to reapply and take the assessment exercise.

Qualified applications will be placed on an eligibility list for three months from the closing date of the listing applied under.
