Job Opportunity, Winthrop Town Hall, Winthrop, MA

Hello - the Town Clerk's Office in Winthrop has a unique opportunity for the right person. We have many old records, some dating as far back as the late 1800s, in several places in our Hall and we need to create a central location and a finders key. Some of the books are handwritten, some typed, most bound and stored in crude vaults, basement rooms and other nooks and crannies thru out the building. There are one or two dedicated dry spaces as well as a very small library museum space that some of the most vulnerable books may be allowed to be kept but overall we need a comprehensive log of what we have, what its current state vulnerability is and where it is located. This will be the basis for our memo to our town council to try and get funding FY19 to create a more safe space for our collection and possibly be able to hire a project intern to complete the project!


This can be an exciting opportunity for the right person to really take this project and run with it! We are a short bus trip off the blue line - only ten minutes from Boston and bus stops in front of our building or there is free parking in this building, and we are in walking distance to our town center's restaurants and coffee shops!


Please send a letter of interest to me at the email address below!
