Job Description

Discover, Engage, and Thrive. The Sonoma County Library (CA) seeks an experienced leader who will be engaged with the community and open to new ideas. The Sonoma County Library is a Joint Powers Authority created in 1975 to serve the County’s nearly 500,000 residents through 11 full-service locations throughout the county, two rural stations, and specialized collections such as the Wine Library and Genealogy and Local History collections. The Library is governed by an independent seven-member Library Commission in a community in which almost half the service population has a library card. With a $15 million annual budget, a challenge for the new Director and staff (129.5 FTEs) will be to work with the Commission, Library Advisory Boards, Friends of the Library groups, county-wide Library Foundation and other political entities to usher in a new era in community outreach and responsiveness—potentially under a newly revised Joint Powers Agreement. The starting hiring range is $128,378-$153,920 (dependent on experience and qualifications) with an excellent benefits package.
