We are seeking a Youth Services Librarian who is a curious, playful, imaginative, creative, and mission-driven individual who believes in the power of libraries in transforming both communities and individuals. The right person will embrace our small community and will possess the interpersonal, organizational, and critical thinking skills along with the knowledge necessary to serve as the authority on children and young adult services and programming—both physical and virtual. The incumbent is responsible for collection management and the planning, coordination, and presentation of programs, services, enrichment opportunities, and special-interest groups geared for children and teens including the youth volunteer program. This individual will also assist the Adult Services Librarian in communicating library offerings through print materials, press releases to local media outlets, e-newsletters, and community partners. This position requires balancing multiple responsibilities in a fast-paced and forward-thinking environment with an emphasis on providing an exemplary patron experience.
MLIS from an ALA-accredited program is required. Experience in youth and young adult programming and services preferred.
To apply for this full-time, exempt, benefitted position, please send an email including a cover letter and resume to Jennifer Ashby, Library Director, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
A criminal background check, pre-employment drug screening, and a valid driver’s license are required. Applications will be accepted until the position is filled. Employment will begin in February 2024.
Please note, that the above job description describes the general nature, tasks, responsibilities, and level of work to be performed; it is not meant to be an all-inclusive list of every responsibility, duty, and skill required for the position. Other duties may be assigned.
We’re sorry for any inconvenience! We’ll be open at 10 a.m. on Saturday, Sept. 14.
