I am prayerfully considering making a proposal to our church leadership that my volunteer position become a part-time paid position.

Countless church members are always surprised when I tell them that I am a volunteer.

I'm sure the bulk of us are volunteers but I'd like to gauge the precedence of paid church librarians.

If you are willing to share, I'd like to know if you are paid (and if so how many hours per week), or volunteer (and if so how many hours per week).

I want to be considerate if anyone is uncomfortable sharing publicly, you can send me a private message.

I also want to be clear that I do not want to know how much anyone is paid, (unless of course you feel so inclined).

Thank you so much. This is such a valuable resource and I am very thankful for you all.

The Lord has blessed me with a full time job since 1989 as church library director. I have the luxury of being in a very large church that makes this possible. There is also one other full time staff member and a part-time staff member along with about 30 volunteers. Most people don't realize the amount of time and work that goes into maintaining a church library. The church library is or can be a vital part of the church ministry. I would encourage you to pursue the possibility of a part-time paid position.

Paul, thank you so much for your response. What a blessing you are to your church.

I am up to my nose finalizing the last minute details of our summer reading program. Once that's behind me I will definitely pursue a paid position.

I'd still love opinions and thoughts from other members.
