DUTIES AND RESPONSIBILITIES:
Generally, duties and responsibilities are listed from most to least critical or time consuming.
Boulder is not just a beautiful place. There is a kindness and warmth about the people here that exist only in places that truly value community. There are hundreds of reasons to live here including (to name just a few): 1) Three hundred days of sunshine; 2) The ability to walk out your back door to hit the trails; 3) An amazing, constantly-evolving food scene; 4) An influx of culture and diversity thanks to the University of Colorado and Naropa University; 5) Rubbing elbows with artists, entrepreneurs and start-up companies in a place with more new businesses per capita than almost any city in the nation. From technology to design to aerospace to the arts, Boulder continues to define itself as a leader.
No matter what you may have heard about Boulder, Boulderites are fiercely independent and passionately engaged. Boulder's citizenry continues to redefine what civic participation looks like. They take an active role in promoting public infrastructure such as libraries, parks, and open space. Today, the City of Boulder is in the midst of a dramatic re-envisioning of its downtown civic corridor. Our Main Library is the western anchor of this bold new vision. The city’s core values are important to us. Read them. Commit them to memory. There won’t be a test, but we do expect you’ll live them as we do--and the good news is you'll be happy to, because these values just make sense.
