Employment & Volunteering

Who Are We?

We’re dedicated people who care about the community, and we’re so proud of our Library that we made a video about it.

It’s our job to make peoples’ lives better, and we do that by helping them feel connected to their community, supported in achieving their goals, and welcome in their Library.

We love books! Racy bios, sneaky mysteries, guidebooks to wonder, controversial political reviews, and magical worlds. Getting the right book into the right hands just makes our day.

We also love making things. Our hackLABs and mediaLABs let people create fun and useful things, and along the way we teach them some new skills that they’ll find useful in all sorts of ways they haven’t even thought about. We want people to challenge themselves and develop their creativity, and we expect the same of ourselves.

Our Staff are our greatest resource and it’s their ideas, skills, and initiative that push us forward to provide outstanding services. We understand that our employees are the Library’s most valuable asset. The sum of the individual differences, life experiences, knowledge, inventiveness, innovation, self-expression, unique capabilities, and talent that our employees invest in their work represents a significant part of our culture, reputation, and achievements. We are committed to attracting and retaining individuals who represent the diversity in our own community and beyond.

The Innisfil ideaLAB & Library encourages employment opportunities to be available to all persons based on applicable skills and qualifications. Accommodations for disabilities will be provided on request, to support candidate participation in all aspects of the recruitment process.
