Writing a cover letter is far from easy.
This is especially true if you are writing one for your first employment.
Even writing the 10th cover letter is almost as difficult as the 1st one? Well, it is!
A cover letter for an entry-level library assistant position needs all your love and attention if you want to make it work.
The challenge is not in the format of the letter, but in how you word it.
Words are powerful tools that can be used to offend or convince an employer that you are worth every cent that he will spend in training you for a job.
Make your cover letter worth his or her while.

Mr. Jaden McNaught
Costa Public Library
5258 W 4th Street
Sparta, IL 32012
Dear Mr. McNaught:
I’m excited by the possibility of joining the Costa Public Library as a Library Assistant. My postsecondary certificate in library technology, and a strong understanding of acquisitions, cataloging, and automated library systems make me an exceptional contender.
A brief highlight of the skills and values I would bring to your library includes:
- Knowledge of loaning library materials to patrons and collecting returned materials.
- Acquired sorting and reshelving skills developed through coursework.
- Thorough understanding of registering new patrons and issuing library cards.
- Ability to perform routine clerical tasks such as organizing files.
- An energetic, passionate, and “patron-driven” communication style.
As part of your library, you will find me to be immediately contributory and exceptionally organized.
If your schedule allows, I would like to meet with you in person and take this discussion forward. I will contact you next Monday to see if this is possible. Should you need to reach me, please feel free to call me at (000) 323-4354.
