culture, music, technology, makers, as well as reading in every format. *Many
of the grants support a very full event calendar* (check it out at
WWW.CROMAINE.ORG) which you will be instrumental in creating.   We are an
Advantage, hoopla, and RB Digital magazine and audiobook library. We also
offer Kanopy and Universal Class, services supporting our lifelong
learners. We welcome new technologies and ways to improve collections and
services, taking seriously every patron request for both popular materials
and those more esoteric. *We pay non-MLS managers from $19.00 to $20.50 per
hour to start; MLS managers start at $23.74 to $24.76*; 40 hours per week
with half-hour paid lunch; includes some evenings and weekends with Sundays

and immediately vested with no required employee match.*

loves its library and its library staff even more. Send your application
