Human capital formation of any country depends to a large extent on the level of human capital development. So, it is important that people are properly developed, effectively managed and efficiently motivated in order to achieve high productivity which will have a spill over on the nation's economic productivity. This study examined job motivation as a predictor of job satisfaction among professional and non-professional library staff in Ambrose Alli University, Ekpoma. The study reveals that there are motivational packages that significantly predict the satisfaction of library staff and there is no significanct difference between the satisfaction derived by professional and non-professional library staff. The study further showed that library staff derived most satisfaction from salary/pay, library policies and administration, advancement and personal growth and job security. Therefore, the management of library should intensify and sustain policies that will enhance these factors. Since needs are not static, top management should ensure regular survey of staff satisfaction in the library sub-unit of the institution in order to have a well satisfied workforce that can discharge better services to library users.
