The Director of Children’s Services is an integral member of the management team, working directly under the Assistant County Librarian of Public Services, providing insight on best practices for children’s services in libraries. We are looking for an energetic individual with a sense of humor. Our new director will lead the dedicated professionals of our Children’s Services team, providing programming guidance and training to staff working directly with children at the ten locations of Spartanburg County Public Libraries. Our Children’s Services team embraces the Every Child Ready to Read initiative and incorporates fun and engaging storytimes and playtimes at each location. Each location provides toys in their children’s area to enhance Every Child Ready to Read practices, and the Headquarters location also has an outdoor playground. Quality gaming, craft, literature and movie programs are planned for school age children and tweens. The director guides the work of the team to implement the Libraries’ Board of Trustees’ strategic goals around programs, staff, collection and environment. The director oversees a large budget for programming, summer reading, and Every Child Ready to Read needs.
