The New York Public Library is the nation's largest public library system. Within its landmark building on Fifth Avenue and 42nd Street, The Library Shop serves hundreds of thousands of visitors a year with a collection of bookish items and books. Visit us at https://shop.nypl.org to see the nature (but not the scope) of our operation.
We are seeking a Part-Time Sales Associate who functions as a cashier and is both the face and personality of the shop. Enthusiasm, product knowledge, and customer engagement also play a part in performance as well as recognizing when getting through the line should be the focus. Above all, this person finds no job too big ("Help me select gifts for my 11 grandchildren") or too small (wiping down computer screens or giving directions) not to attend to with good humor. This person should have a great visual memory and should be curious to learn and share all that the shop has to offer.
