Hanging on a clothes line are three post it notes that spell out "join our team."

The Library promotes a culture where all staff and customers belong, and we share mutual respect and understanding for one another, and lift up each other’s successes.

TLCPL requires that all finalists for a position undergo the following:

  • Criminal background check
  • Pre-employment drug testing on applicants

TLCPL requires a criminal background check and pre-employment drug testing. Applicants will be provided a copy of any positive drug test results. A criminal record does not remove you from employment with the Toledo Lucas County Public Library. Each conviction will be reviewed with respect to the offense, circumstances, seriousness, and position for which you apply.
