Library technicians often work with a wide variety of people such as, clients, students, faculty, and children in the community. Although most library technicians work in public, school, or college libraries, there are many other library and information centers where you can gain employment.  

Libraries can be found in: 

  • schools at all levels
  • local communities
  • museums
  • hospitals
  • law offices
  • cultural and religious organizations
  • publishing, software, and social media companies
