Established in 1878, Louisville retains connections to its modest mining and agricultural beginnings while continuing to transform into one of the most livable, innovative, and economically diverse communities in the United States. Covering nine square miles, Louisville has a population of 20,570 residents and is in Boulder County, about six miles east of Boulder and a short commute northwest of Downtown Denver. With almost 1700 acres of designated open space, Louisville also has 29 parks and over 32 miles of interconnecting trails for biking and hiking. In addition to abundant outdoor recreational opportunities, Louisville residents have access to arts and culture, sports, great restaurants, and the state’s third highest ranked school district. Residents and visitors experience a vibrant, authentic Main Street experience with extensive outdoor dining, a thriving craft beer industry, an in-season farmer’s market, and a variety of community activities. This is an exceptional opportunity for a collaborative and visionary leader to join an engaged community in championing a state-of-the-art library and historical museum collection, in partnership with a talented and committed staff.
Under the general direction of the City Manager, the Director plans, coordinates, and directs the overall programming, activities, and systems of both the Library and the Museum in support of the organization’s mission, vision, and values. The ideal candidate will be a library and museum champion, a relationship builder with a collaborative approach, and a politically savvy administrator capable of furthering a strategic plan and leading capital improvement projects. The Library and Museum function as two separate divisions with individual budgets and the Director will oversee both budgets, $1,586,730 and $192,870 respectively, as well as supervision of 31 FTE including 5 direct reports.
A Master’s degree program from an American Library Association accredited college or university with major coursework in Library Science and Museum Studies (or Anthropology), and a minimum of seven years of increasingly responsible experience in professional public library administration that included oversight of museum services is required. Experience must also have included at least five years of management and supervisory experience. Hands-on experience in both museum and library activities is preferred, as is experience working with a historical library collection. ALA certification as a Certified Public Library Administrator is also preferred.
