We're Seeking a New Director

We love our current library director, Marcia, but she is retiring. That means we need an organized, creative, and community-oriented person to fill the position. The ideal candidate will demonstrate strong computer skills, verbal and written communication skills, and problem-solving skills. They would have the ability to establish effective working relationships with library staff and volunteers, and feel comfortable serving as the public face of the library in the community.

The Library Director is responsible for maintaining a welcome environment for patrons, supervising staff, working with the Board of trustees, developing programming, managing the collection, grant writing, record-keeping and oversight of the budget, and managing the library facility.

We are seeking someone with at least two years of education or training beyond high school, experience working with people of all ages, knowledge of computer technology (including the online catalog system), and the ability to work in a dynamic and changing environment. Library experience is helpful.

If you are interested, you can find a full library director job description at the library website, along with compensation and how to apply. Submission Deadline: Friday June 9, 2023.

Discover & Share Nonfiction with your kids!

Kids love nonfiction books! It's true - watch babies with board books. They are delighted with books that provide photos of other babies’ faces. Toddlers and preschoolers pore over books about insects, animals, and the seasons. Older children devour books about real people - some that look like them and others about people living different lives at different times and in different places. 
Info-loving kids seek books filled with facts, and field guides while young inventors and creators look for "how-to" books. Fact is, young people are naturally curious about their world - and when they are allowed to follow their passions and explore what interests them, it bolsters their overall well-being.
