The Personnel Policy of the Library does not give any employee or potential employee a property or liberty interest in a specific classification or position. The overall responsibility for selection and hiring of staff lies with the Director. No hiring of personnel is finalized until formal approval by the Director is granted.
The Library requires that employees hired after November 6, 1986, be either a United States citizen or authorized to be employed in the United States. Verification of this must be provided at the time of hiring and shall consist of either a United States passport, a certificate of citizenship or naturalization, an unexpired foreign passport authorizing U.S. employment, or a resident alien card containing the applicant's identification and U.S. employment authorization. If applicants do not have any of the above documents, they may provide instead the following combination of documents: either a Social Security Card or U.S. Birth Certificate, and a driver's license or similar State identification.
The Library does not employ individuals under the age of 16 unless proper work permits are obtained and verified prior to the commencement of employment. Any employee working with a work permit shall have a limited work schedule to accommodate school night work restrictions. The library has no mandatory retirement age.
