*/Cromaine Is the Cultural Center of Hartland…and our community 
appreciates that!/*

With construction nearly complete for a 3800 square foot addition, we 
finally have spaces for our staff to continue to create new and innovate 
traditional library services and collections. As the Cultural Center of 
Hartland, Hartland’s Cromaine is expected by its community to offer 
music and art, as well as all of the science, engineering and technology 
engagement possible for all ages. *We have a 20-hour Adult Services 
Librarian position *available with principal responsibilities for 
magazines, technology instruction, and collection development for 
sections of fiction and nonfiction for adults. All of our Librarians are 
cross-trained for Adult, Youth, Teen, and Circulation. You may not do a 
story time, but you’ll probably assist with desk coverage in Youth and 
at Circulation as well as some other programming (Quidditch Tournament 
anyone?) This year Hartland’s Cromaine celebrates its 90^th year of 
service with a big splash September 29 and 30. *We are the place to 
connect—with warm and friendly staff, the Web, and the community. If 
that’s your desire, interest, and future vision, too, then we need you! *

Cromaine District Library is located near the intersection of M-59 and 
US-23—easy to get to from Detroit, Lansing, Ann Arbor, and Flint. 
Hartland’s Cromaine (built in 1927, expanded in 1980, and again this 
year, 2017) has the elegant Community Room, a large physical collection 
and large digital collection, plus two new smaller meeting rooms, a new 
Youth Program Room, and three new study rooms as a result of the little 
addition to this building. *We also have a serious commitment to 
outreach, participating in many events and exhibits beyond our walls* as 
well as finding new ways to be active outside this building in a busy 

Cromaine wins grants, including several National Endowment for the Arts’ 
The Big Read. Grants for technology in Youth, local business 
sponsorships for an expanded summer concert series, exhibits from the 
Smithsonian and to be a pilot for a national grant program—we are a 
place to connect to culture, music, technology, makers, as well as 
reading in every format. *Many of the grants support a very full event 
calendar* (check It out at WWW.CROMAINE.ORG).We are an OverDrive (TLN’s 
Download Destination) plus Advantage, hoopla, and Zinio library. We 
welcome new technologies and ways to improve collections and services, 
taking seriously every patron request.

We pay MLS librarians $19.00 per hour to start, 20 hours per week; 
includes some evenings and weekends. MLA membership and national 
conference attendance (in rotation) paid. After successful completion of 
the 90-day introductory period, an increase to $19.50 is planned. 
Part-time positions at Cromaine have prorated paid time off, plus 
holiday pay, paid birthday, and paid bereavement leave as well as an 
opportunity to participate in AFLAC, but no other paid benefits.

Share your love for new technologies and public service with a community 
that loves its library and its library staff even more. Send your 
application (available at WWW.CROMAINE.ORG), resume and a cover letter 
to “Librarian” at Cromaine or e-mail (preferred to be “green”) to 
brentola at cromaine.org <mailto:brentola at cromaine.org> by July 18, 
2017—position applications accepted until filled.
