All employees of the Library are hired from lists provided by the Mobile County Personnel Board.

We employ approximately 200 workers, including librarians and other professionals and clerical staff.   Most are full-time employees, and the rest are part-time or supernumerary (substitute) workers.

When we have a vacancy, we request a list of qualified candidates from the Personnel Board.   We interview each one and make a selection when all interviews are completed.
