*/Cromaine is The Place to Connect to--/*

*Learn *- technology, online education, new interest

*Enjoy*– discovery, enrichment, cultural and leisure activities

*People *– expertise, gatherings and groups, friends, legacy

As a new member of the TLN Shared Catalog, we are excited to offer the 
resources of so many at the fingertips of our patrons. And, now, we will 
also have more space! Construction begins August 2016 with completion in 
spring 2017! Exciting! Increasing community engagement means keeping our 
staffing up. We have a 20-hour Adult Services Librarian position 
available. This has been our e-resources position, managing the many 
databases to which we subscribe separately, as well as the Adult AV 
selector, including Top Box Office DVDs in Demand (no holds), DVDs, 
audiobooks and e-books.All of our Librarians are cross-trained. You may 
not do a story time, but you’ll probably assist with desk coverage in 
Youth and at Circulation as well as some other programming (Quidditch 
Tournament anyone?) We believe we are the place to connect—with warm and 
friendly staff, the Web, and the community. If that’s your desire, 
interest, and future vision, too, then we need you!

Cromaine District Library is located near the intersection of M-59 and 
US-23—easy to get to from Detroit, Lansing, Ann Arbor, and Flint. 
Cromaine-Village (built in 1927 and expanded in 1980) is the main 
library with the largest collection and programming space, but we also 
offer a popular collection and an increasing number of programs at the 
Crossroads Branch, in a strip mall, established 2005, but closing in 
2017 to concentrate our resources, human and financial, in one location.

Cromaine wins grants, including several National Endowment for the Arts’ 
The Big Read. Grants for technology in Youth, local business 
sponsorships for an expanded summer concert series, exhibits from the 
Smithsonian and to be a pilot for a national grant program—we are a 
place to connect to culture, music, technology, makers, as well as 
reading in every format. We are an OverDrive (TLN’s Download 
Destination) plus Advantage and hoopla from Midwest Tape, library. Many 
of the grants support a very full event calendar (check It out at 
www.cromaine.org/Programs / Events).

And, MLS staff wage rates have been increased effective July 12: now 
$19.00 per hour to start, 20 hours per week; includes some evenings and 
weekends. MLA membership and national conference attendance (in 
rotation) paid. After successful completion of the 90-day introductory 
period, an increase to $19.50 is planned. Part-time positions at 
Cromaine have prorated paid time off, plus holiday pay, paid birthday, 
and paid bereavement leave as well as an opportunity to participate in 
AFLAC, but no other paid benefits.

Share your love for new technologies and public service with a community 
that loves its library and its library staff even more. Read the job 
description and send your application (available at 
www.cromaine.org--Cromaine News & Info), resume and a cover letter to 
“Librarian” at Cromaine or e-mail (preferred to be “green”) to 
brentola at cromaine.org <mailto:brentola at cromaine.org> by July 22, 
2016—position applications accepted until filled.
