Job Description

Montgomery is looking for its new head librarian for the city-county library system! Work tends to be more administrative in nature versus operational. Major work responsibilities include managing the physical resources of the library system, managing the staff of the library system, providing administrative support to the Library Board, overseeing long and short term planning, monitoring library programs and services, managing the budget and finances of the library system and managing the community relations and marketing efforts of the library system. The employee works with the Library Board and the city and county to provide effective and efficient library services to the community. The Library Director differs from the Assistant Library Director in that the Assistant serves as the day-to-day manager of operations while the Director manages the overall system in terms of planning and oversight.  The employee works with and reports through the Montgomery City-County Public Library Board of Trustees and the Director of Cultural Affairs.

The Community

Today, Montgomery is known for its renaissance of historic downtown and redevelopment of the riverfront. Montgomery is a city rich in history, yet clearly focused on the future. Once the capital of the Confederacy, Montgomery grew to become the center of the Civil Rights Movement. We are more than just the capital of Alabama-we are the epitome of economic prosperity. We enjoy being the showplace for southern hospitality, beautiful weather, and high-tech jobs.
