Director of Libraries

Multnomah County Library


If you a talented strategic thinker, library systems innovator and collaborative leader with a background in library management or administration in a complex environment, this may be a once-in-a-lifetime career opportunity to lead one of the most respected library systems in the nation.


Multnomah County Library is the oldest public library west of the Mississippi, with a  <http://www.multcolib.org/about/mcl-his.html> history that reaches back to 1864. Today, the Central Library and 16 (soon to be 18) neighborhood libraries that make up the library system house 480 computer search stations for the public and a collection of two million books and other library materials. In fiscal year 2009, the library budget is approximately $60 million with 477 FTE.


Multnomah County residents are well known for their enthusiastic use of library services. Oregon's largest public library ranks first in annual circulation of books and other materials among U.S. libraries serving fewer than two million residents. 


The next Library Director will have the ability to guide the organization toward a future where resources are maximized, technology is leveraged and services are tailored to the evolving needs of patrons.


If you feel that you have the experience, qualifications and motivation to fulfill this challenging role, you are invited to apply for this opportunity immediately. This position is open until a sufficient number of applications are received. For full consideration, please send a résumé covering relevant experience and education (including latest salary), a meaningful cover letter detailing your interest and how you qualify for the position and four professional references by the initial screening date of March 11.
