Interested in Student Employment in the Library?
Library student employees handle a wide range of tasks including staffing public service desks, consulting in computer labs, mending worn-out materials, processing new materials, shelving books, designing web pages, and handling office-related work.
If you are interested in finding current available positions in the library, please visit Macalester’s Student Employment website.
Each year, we ask graduating seniors who work in the library to select a book that they particularly enjoyed reading, or that has special meaning for them, to include in our collection. An honorary book plate bearing the student’s name and year of graduation is placed inside the cover of our collection’s physical copy in recognition of their service to the library. Their choices are showcased in this online collection, along with thoughts they have shared about their book and about working in the DeWitt Wallace Library.
