Student Employment Week is April 11 through April 15 and serves as a worthy reminder of just how much we owe our amazing, talented, and dedicated student workers without whom the Library could not be open the 95.5 hours it is each week during the semester.
Each academic year, the Library employs an average of 24 student workers eligible for work-study. These workers have the important job of serving as the “face” of the Library, as they literally are the first people seen when students, faculty, and staff enter the building.
After undergoing a three part training, these workers are fully prepared to provide friendly, professional service by locating items, checking out materials, answering questions about spaces and services housed in the Library, and making educated referrals.
Whether it is early morning, afternoon, evening, weekday, or weekend, you can usually find one of our exceptional student workers below at the desk ready and willing to assist you.
On behalf of the entire Library staff I would like to thank each of these students for their regular contributions to the Library!
*Both Orianna and Nicole were named Wheelock College Student Employees of the Year! Congratulations to both!
