Full-Time Children's Librarian (2)

Are you looking for a place to grow in knowledge yet use your creative talent? Do you enjoy engaging with patrons the size of babies and kids up to age twelve and their caretakers? 

Do you like a work environment in a mid-size library where you have the freedom to try new ideas?

We have openings for two full-time librarians at GMPL where our recently updated department serves the Midview community.

As a self-motivated and engaged member of the youth services team, you will plan and implement services for children and families, and structure programs to incorporate skills from Every Child Ready to Read. As a professional librarian, you are well versed in the developmental needs of children, understand your customer needs, and enjoy connecting them with the right solutions. We will assist you with your essential functions by providing continuous professional development, paid membership to ALA, PLA, ALSC, OLC, and NEO-RLS, plus provide opportunities to attend conferences with these organizations, all paid by GMPL. You are expected to promote children services and programs and form collaborations with outside organizations. Inside the library, you are expected to develop constructive and cooperative working relationships with others and maintain them over time. We offer a drug-free workplace with four weeks of paid vacation, excellent health and dental benefits, sick time, paid holidays and paid life insurance for your wellbeing. Our current salary range for this position is $15 – $22 an hour for a 37.5-hour work week.                                                                                                                     
Qualifications: Master’s degree in Library and Information Science from an ALA accredited college or university required.
