Sample Institution Librarian Cover Letter

An institution librarian cover letter lets the hiring manager know the applicant is good with people and has the necessary skills to plan and direct library programs for the residents and staff of extended care facilities, such as mental institutions, correctional institutions, or institutions for those who are physically handicapped or mentally retarded. All institution librarian cover letters should include specific information such as this in order to set the applicants apart from others competing for the job.

Dear Mr. Banks:

Your posting on JobBankUSA.com for an institution librarian caught my eye. I am looking for this work and would welcome being able to plan and direct library programs for your residents. These could include read-aloud programs, book reviews, displays, and related films and discussions.

I have a master's degree in library science and have a keen interest in people who are mentally challenged yet still interested in life.

Would you like to meet to talk over the position you are offering and to see if I meet your requirements? If so, please call me on my cell phone: 456-777-8989 to set up a date and time that works for you. I appreciate your reading my cover letter.
