What did you do last week? Here at the Berkshire Athenaeum in Pittsfield, we were carving pumpkins.
We have a sweet terrace just off of our Children’s Library, which made for a very sincere pumpkin patch. At craft tables filled with pipe cleaners and googly-eyes kids and adults cut pumpkins in original designs.
Luckily, we have an awesome team here at Pittsfield’s Public Library, so we had this event under control – and attracted over 200 attendees. But what was missing was … a Children’s Librarian!
There are so many other projects we want to accomplish — like adding a mural from a local author’s children’s book, collecting the best children’s and YA books to fill a book bike, and encouraging patrons to play with our Nintendo switch. Oh, we’re also reading stories at our local museum’s PJ Night and signing up families for library cards at the Head Start’s Thanksgiving luncheon.
If you have the interest and energy to join in on all of the excitement, please consider applying to be our next Children’s and Youth Services Supervisor at the Berkshire Athenaeum. The job is listed on the MBLC site and directly on the City of Pittsfield job site.
If, by chance, you aren’t lucky enough to want this job, maybe you know someone else who would be perfect: we would be grateful if you would please pass along this opportunity.
Reach out and ask us you have any questions. We can’t wait to meet our next team member!
The Staff of the Berkshire Athenaeum, Pittsfield’s Public Library
