Working at Newport News Public Library (NNPL) is no ordinary job. As a public servant, you will find yourself getting to do so much more than you imagined. Yes, we have books—a lot of them. But working at NNPL goes way beyond books.

Did you know our library branches host hundreds of programs and special events for patrons throughout the year? Our team pitches, plans, and puts together free programs involving science, technology, engineering, art, math, reading, and much more.  NNPL also offers computer and technology classes, research assistance, and extensive career help.

It takes a team of people with an array of skills to fulfill all these services and needs. From entry-level positions to advanced-degree roles, we have a place for curious and dedicated team-players who enjoy working with people.

At the Newport News Public Library, we embrace employees with a broad-range of skill sets, experiences, and points of view, which means we strive for a diverse workforce. We know our employees are the key to our success. We offer full and part-time jobs. The City of Newport News offers a comprehensive benefits package for many positions.
