Head of Youth Services Full-time Position
Looking for a challenge? Love collaboration and trying out new ideas? Are you fearless and committed in your approach to providing top notch library service using both new and traditional means? You could be Cranberry Public Library’s next Head of Youth Services!
We’re seeking a highly motivated, creative ideas person to lead our youth services library team in Cranberry Township – someone who has overwhelming enthusiasm for working with children and families; possesses outstanding customer service skills; is outgoing with a sense of humor; and has the ability to sell the library both inside of and outside of the library’s walls. Strong skills in early literacy programming and services are a must as well as the ability to create reality out of “pie in the sky” visioning. Extra consideration will be given to applicants who can mesmerize peers, inspire the jaded, and conquer the impossible … all before lunch.
The successful candidate for the full-time position as Head of Youth Services at the Cranberry Public Library will have a degree/background in elementary education and a minimum of 3 years’ experience working with children. Preference will be given to those with an MLIS and/or public library experience working with children. Supervisory experience is a bonus. In return, you will be given the opportunity to work in an upbeat, fun, “try new things” environment that is open to change, promotes forward thinking, and appreciates fresh approaches to traditional services. Additionally, you’ll get to be a part of the 2019 Forge Ahead: Library Makeover project.
Health Care and some vacation benefits upon successful completion of a 3-month probationary period; full benefits after 1 year of employment. Minimum salary of $37,000.
Electronic submissions only; interested applicants can electronically submit a resume, with 3 references and cover letter to email@example.com. No phone calls, please.
