Job Description

Position Open:

Library Director for the

Lyons Regional Library District

Lyons, CO


What We Seek:

            We are seeking an energetic, collaborative, and innovative leader to serve as our Library Director. The ideal candidate will work with our talented volunteers and community residents to continue the tradition of excellence established by the Lyons Depot Library in providing collections and services that meet the diverse needs of the region’s 3,600 residents.

About This Job:

            The Lyons Regional Library District was formed in 2013 to create a larger, stronger public library for the community. It is governed by an all-volunteer Board of Trustees, the members of which are appointed by the three governmental entitles that created this District: the Town of Lyons, Boulder County and Larimer County. The Board of Trustees of the Library District will hire and supervise the new Library Director.

            On July 1, 2015 the Board of Trustees of the Regional District will supplant the Town of Lyons as the employer and supervising body for the existing Lyons Depot Library, taking over current holdings and operations. The Board of Trustees envisions the construction of a new building for the Lyons Regional Library, and the Library Director will be in a position to help guide the exciting process of transition.
