It Could Be You
Who will be Broadway Gal's new youth services assistant, who will serve as early literacy specialist? Since it's literally impossible to replace Wild Thang (because her talents are gargantuan, and ordinary folks can't possibly fill her shoes), we must still hire a gifted newbie who can work her or his way to becoming indispensable. Our Library has a history of developing such staff (e.g., Broadway Gal, Wild Thang, Savvy, Technigal, moi--the list is too long to include here), who begin simply as highly skilled, proficient employees but blossom into wunderkinds (even if they're technically too old to be called that). (In fairness, I should, as an aside, say that Broadway Gal was already a wunderkind when she started working at MPL five years ago. Still, you see my point.)
Will it be YOU? Why not you? We could do a lot worse. Scowl-Face is a case-in-point.
Seriously, if you're interested and qualified, you should apply. We make it easy in a low-tech kind of way. Just click here for the complete job description, and then click here for a job application in PDF format. Print and complete the form and return it to the Library Youth Services Department (by U.S. mail or in person). Alternately, you could complete the PDF form (if you have a PDF editor such as Adobe) and attach it to your email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Or attach it to a carrier pigeon and let fly! Okay, let's not do that last one.
Long-time followers of this feature know all the fun stuff Wild Thang has done in her capacity as early literacy specialist (or, generally, as youth services assistant, which is the official position title). You, too, could be doing that! Be honest: Your current job cannot possibly be as enjoyable as this one. You know I'm right about this.

So get cracking! These job application forms don't complete themselves. Do it today! Otherwise, we might have to use Scowl-Face as a sub. Believe moi, nobody wants that.
