Dear Ms. Rosie Hutcherson,
I am applying for the position of Circulation Assistant with Worthington Libraries.
I believe that reading is a very important part of our lives, so working at the library’s circulation desk is a great opportunity for me. I have excellent interpersonal skills and I enjoy working with a variety of people on a daily basis. Checking the materials in and out of the library is a great chance to meet new people and to encourage others to take advantage of all the resources it has to offer.
I have the ability to monitor the computer room to make sure all the visitors are following the rules and to ensure everyone has the opportunity to use the systems. I am also familiar with using the equipment in the library such as scanners, copiers and fax machines. I have the ability to maintain excellent records and keep all paperwork in order.
I have the skills to handle complaints and deal with problems as they arise and to collect late fees from patrons that return material in late. I can send out notices and make phone calls when necessary to inform patrons about any late fees they are incurring.
I have the ability to represent the library at fundraisers and to collect donations to help keep the facility running smoothly. I have the skills and ability to ensure that the library runs efficiently, that all patrons follow policies and that all material is properly stored.
My contact number is (555)-555-5555 and I hope to hear from you soon.
