Job Description

The City of Eugene's Downtown Library is hiring three (3) Librarian 1 positions: one in Youth Services; and two in Adult Services.

The Eugene Public Library seeks collaborative and passionate librarians in Youth Services and Adult Services at the Downtown Library. 

Librarians create and maintain positive relationships with patrons, staff, and the community, plan and present dynamic community programs, and consistently provide excellent customer, people-first service. Our goal is to provide equitable access to diverse, culturally relevant and authentic programs, services, outreach, materials, and spaces, and safe opportunities to thrive and survive, and as well as foster a love of reading by promoting access to the universe of ideas and information. 

As leaders within their work groups, librarians coordinate and guide projects and project teams. While performing in-charge-of-building duties, the ideal candidates will lead with care and concern. They will support staff with difficult and unwanted patron behavior, balancing trauma-informed practices, safety policies, and the library’s patron code of conduct expectations. As active curators of print and digital collections, librarians select and maintain diverse collections. The successful candidates will be fierce equity, diversity, and inclusion champions who are forward-thinking, creative, adaptable, and committed to developing innovative services that foster library and community collaboration and connection. Strong communication skills and the ability to manage multiple projects and deadlines is essential in our busy and fast-paced system. We are committed to providing the best possible traditional and cutting-edge library services and we want someone who shares that commitment. 

We are happy to support you in developing your librarian skills and growing your library career!

The Community

Located at the southern end of the lush Willamette Valley, Eugene is perfectly positioned for the modern adventurer. A scenic drive east takes residents to the towering Cascade Mountains, west to the stunning Pacific Ocean coastline, or north to the bustling city of Portland. Eugene is a small city with unlimited things to do; from hiking to kayaking to floating the river. Eugene is the ideal place for outdoor recreation. Downtown Eugene is the vibrant cultural hub of the region; the Oregon Bach Festival and Eugene Symphony call the Hult Center for the Performing Arts home. Additionally, the area hosts a booming food and beverage industry with top-notch craft breweries and wineries. The Eugene-based University of Oregon is the flagship public university and brings boundless educational, scientific, and cultural opportunities – not to mention the renowned Ducks athletic programs. Eugene’s nationally recognized transit system and gold rating as a "Walk-and-Bicycle-Friendly Community" helps residents fully experience all that the region has to offer. Eugene recently hosted the World Athletics Championships at the historic Hayward Field. Eugene’s title as TrackTown USA extends beyond Hayward Field with miles of trails running through its south hills, along the Willamette River, and through hundreds of acres of city parks.
