The Oglesby Public Library is not currently seeking applications for any of our part-time entry-level clerk positions. If you would like to submit an application for us to consider you for positions that open within one year, ask for an application at the desk, or click here to download an application. Relatively flexible scheduling of shifts is a feature of the positions as clerks often swap shifts or substitute for other shifts.
