Mobile Service Guide
As the Mobile Service Guide you will work with the Mobile Librarian, and Mobile Library Bus service, to become an integrated part of the community through the building and maintenance of relationships. You will take an active interest in what is happening in the community, and endeavour to connect people and groups with relevant content, programmes, events and services. The Mobile Library Bus serves as both the vehicle for delivering books, literacy, programmes, and information services with regular weekly City Stops, school and preschool visits, and supports community and Council events as a partner anchor.
If you are friendly and approachable with good general knowledge and a passion for working with the community then you will be a good fit for this role. You will need to be punctual and reliable with the ability to work independently or as part of a team.
You will be a member of the Community Living Room of the City Team within the Service Delivery Division of the Libraries and Community Services Unit. This team provides services that support and enable the different neighbourhoods in Palmerston North to achieve their goals and needs. This is achieved through working within the neighbourhoods to understand their needs and desires and matching resources, services, and content accordingly. The team also work to ensure that community centres and Community libraries are developed as complementary facilities working together in each community.
As driving the mobile library is a key component of this role, a full Class 1 (Car) driver’s licence is essential and a HT licence is an advantage. If you do not hold an HT licence you must be willing to obtain your HT licence, with the support of PNCC.
