The Montrose Regional Library District is seeking an enthusiastic and self-motivated Teen Services Librarian to highlight our unique resources and connect with the teen community.
We value candidates who can keep a confident, upbeat, and positive attitude while navigating the public library environment; possess strong communication and organizational skills; are comfortable with people of all ages and from all backgrounds; are passionate about developing youth leadership potential; and enjoy reaching out to the community, building relationships, and supporting innovative teen programs. An ideal candidate will possess Spanish-language facility (nearly a quarter of our population are native Spanish speakers); flexibility to work evenings and weekends as assigned, including regularly working Saturdays; and the ability to perform more physically intensive duties, which can include lifting and pushing heavy materials, bending and kneeling, and being mobile for much of the day.

We offer benefits including health, dental, vision, and life insurance; retirement; and vacation, personal, and sick leave, in addition to holidays. The starting rate for a Teen Services Librarian is $41,700 annually, with an additional increase for a Master’s degree in Library and Information Science from an ALA-accredited university; we will also provide an increase for proficiency in Spanish.
