Culture Pass is seeking a part-time Community Programming Assistant to plan and execute community programs in library branches (with the possibility of some limited virtual programming as well). The position will be located within the Strategic Planning office at Brooklyn Public Library. This is a permanent, paid position at $25/hour. The Assistant will spend approximately 15 hours per week working on Culture Pass community programs and will need to be able to work outside standard business hours (evenings and weekends) depending on program scheduling. The Assistant should be willing to travel around the five boroughs to attend programs.   Culture Pass allows library cardholders 13 and over from Brooklyn Public Library, The New York Public Library, and Queens Public Library to check out free passes to participating NYC cultural institutions. Culture Pass will work with participating organizations to bring cultural programming to libraries in underserved communities throughout the city. By offering these programs, participating institutions will be better connected with the city at large and attract individuals and families who may not typically visit due to barriers such as lack of awareness about what the institution offers, price of admission, physical distance to the museum and discomfort visiting a new and unfamiliar place.

Brooklyn Public Library (BPL) is among the borough’s most democratic civic institutions, serving patrons in every neighborhood and from every walk of life. Established in 1896, BPL is one of the nation’s largest public library systems and a recognized leader in cultural offerings, literacy, out-of-school-time services, workforce development programs, and digital literacy.   BPL’s Central Library, with its breathtaking façade, sweeping grand lobby and vast contemporary and historical collections, is a Brooklyn icon. As the main library in the system, Central Library’s outdoor plaza, grand lobby, and Dr. S. Stevan Dweck Cultural Center—a state-of-the-art, 189-seat auditorium—serve as the main venues for BPL’s arts and culture programming, special events, and private event rentals. Ushers are part of a dynamic team that primarily represent the front of house operations at the Dweck Cultural Center, but also work at event spaces throughout Central and other library sites as needed.   Ushers are responsible for providing: exemplary customer service to patrons, visiting artists, donors and anyone they may encounter; fostering a positive audience experience; providing general wayfinding, seating and evacuation assistance in case of emergencies; and contributing to the successful production of events (before, during and post-performance).   Ushers report to Central Administration’s Office Manager and during performances to the Head Usher and/or BPL staff member managing the performance/special event. While all interested applicants are encouraged, we especially welcome applications from working artists and writers across all genres.
