Join Our Team!

Allen County Public Library does more than offer books to patrons. We are a place to explore potential, unlock one-of-a-kind experiences and support our community through bountiful resources – but it takes the right people to turn these visions into reality. ACPL is looking for people who can grow, dream and create. Our staff seeks to be achievers, leaders and visionaries lifted by their own unique skills and passions. If you feel drawn to work that creates lifelong impressions, pushes the status quo and lifts our community higher, we want you on our team.

Retirement Planning

ACPL participates in the Public Employees' Retirement Fund (PERF). Full time employees are auto-enrolled in this defined benefit plan ("pension").

What does this mean for you? Well, if you stay with a PERF employer, like ACPL, for at least 10 years, you'll receive a monthly pension upon retirement for the rest of your life! There are also benefit options for your spouse and/or dependent children.

The monthly benefit is calculated based on your years of service and average salary with your employer.  To learn more about this rich benefit, visit here.
