Superior District Library     

Deadline:  none given will post until September 30, 2014                                                      

Due to the retirement of the current director, the Board of Trustees of Superior District Library (headquartered in Sault Sainte Marie, MI) is seeking an energetic leader with a strong commitment to public library service and the skills necessary to direct a diverse and unique library system.

This newly-formed (March, 2013) system, which encompasses 1,725 square miles in Michigan’s eastern Upper Peninsula is an independent district with a representative Board of Trustees and dedicated funding.  The Library’s staff of 36 serve over 40,000 residents with eight (8) library facilities.  An annual operating budget of nearly $1 million  is derived primarily from a voted local tax.  The system’s award-winning libraries enjoy strong support in each of their communities

Known as the Northern Gateway to Canada, Sault Sainte Marie itself is a community of 15,000, home to the world famous Soo Locks, connecting Lake Superior with Lake Huron. The “Sault” and its neighboring communities are a long- time favorite of tourists, as well as home to the highly respected Lake Superior State University, a dynamic and fast- growing regional medical center, several modern industrial parks, and three airports.   An industrious local work ethic and a minimal bureaucracy with strong community collaboration help to make the area both welcoming and growing.

On the eastern end of Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, you’ll find a wonderland of unspoiled natural beauty, charming small town life, world-renowned landmarks, and over a thousand years of Native American history.

The region's abundant natural beauty, nearby Great Lakes, extensive National and State forests, and limitless outdoor activities provide recreation opportunities during every season.  Coupled with safe neighborhoods, lack of traffic congestion, affordable housing, extensive cultural activities, low cost of living, and modern and outstanding public and private educational facilities, it is a great place to live.

Position requirements:  Masters’ degree in Library and Information Science from a program accredited by the American Library Association; a minimum of six (6) years of post-degree library employment, of which at least two (2) years have been in a management/supervisory position.

The successful candidate will have a thorough knowledge of all facets of public library service; an enthusiasm for and understanding of rural and small-town librarianship; the ability to manage and prioritize multiple projects; excellent organizational and communications skills; strong financial management abilities; the ability to work effectively with other governmental agencies, civic and community groups, and the general public; and the ability to address challenges in a collaborative and creative manner.  Experience in a successful millage or levy campaign is essential.   Multi-outlet and district library experience is desirable and knowledge of Michigan library law would be a plus.
