Job Opportunities

The Lewis & Clark Library in Helena, MT hires for the best fit for any open position. Staff culture is motivated by the Library’s vision statement and the Library’s relationship with the community is driven by its mission statement. The Library is committed to customer service, a diverse and inclusive materials collection, creative meaningful programming, privacy of patron information, strategic planning, fiscal responsibility, collaborative leadership and access to information for all. Library staff commit to those principles as well from their first day on the team to the time they no longer serve the community in that capacity.

The Main Branch building has been recently remodeled adding clean, functional, light-filled areas that address the needs of the ‘Community Living Room’ of Helena while keeping the warm oak and welcoming feeling of the original structure.

The Library has four full service Branches located in East Helena, Lincoln, Augusta and a Bookmobile which is stationed at the Main Branch.

LCL offers a competitive benefits package including medical, dental and vision coverage, to employees and qualified dependents as well as a State sponsored retirement plan, access to supplemental insurance and a 457b plan. In addition, LCL provides vacation, sick leave and paid holidays.

A Library application form, a letter of interest, a resume, and the names and contact information of three professional references are required to be considered for a position at the Library. Incomplete or illegible applications will not be considered.

Applications may be submitted by mail, email or dropped off at the Main Branch of the Library. If applying for more than one position, please submit separate applications for each position.
