Job Description

Do you love the feel of the open road, on your way to the next community event to deliver library materials and services? Do you thrive in new situations, meeting new people and making new connections to library resources? Does the thought of keeping the bookmobile shiny and maintained, filled with crafts and materials for all ages, sound like the perfect job for you? If so, then our full-time Outreach Librarian position may be just what you’re looking for! 

We’re hiring a dedicated staff member to bring the library’s mission outside of our walls to build community and promote literacy for diverse populations.

They’ll be equal parts independent trailblazer and all-hands-on-deck team player, with a love for all things library and the many hats that come with being on a small team.

The Community

The Town of Eaton Colorado’s Public Library is a small-town library with big support and big participation. We have a collaborative team, a tight-knit community, and a newly remodeled, historic facility with the latest makerspace technology. What we’re looking for is community-centered, innovative, dedicated staff to grow our team. Get away from the city; be part of a dynamic and active library in a beautiful little town on the northern plains of Colorado.

Located in Eaton, Colorado, the Eaton Public Library has grown from a small brick library constructed in 1911 to a 13,000 square foot, updated modern library. Staff and patrons love the historical feel of our library which was named after Benjamin Eaton, a former governor and credited with bringing irrigation to Weld County.  As a member library of High Plains Library District, we enjoy solid funding to offer competitive salaries, extensive programs and up-to-date collections while maintaining local authority over our policies and services. Our library is located 5 miles north of Greeley, home to the University of Northern Colorado. Fort Collins, home to Colorado State University and a convenient gateway to enjoying the Rocky Mountains is only a 25-mile drive on uncrowded roads.  We are near bike trails, the Pawnee Grassland, numerous public parks, and recreational opportunities.  

Eaton is a town of roughly 6,000 residents nestled in highly productive farmland in Northern Colorado and has a proud history of recognizing and harmonizing with the various agricultural entities that surround the Town while meeting the needs of the growing population to make it a great place to live and raise a family. Eaton has been nationally recognized for the last three years as one of the top 3 safest communities in Colorado and is host to a highly accredited public-school system, operated by the Eaton School District RE-2, with a new high school facility. We are proud to have graduated three NFL football players and to celebrate our local schools as the heart of our community.
