The annual salary is $51,499.24 with an excellent benefits package. Residence in the City of Springfield is required within a year of hire. Join our forward-looking public library if you can embrace the attitude that “It’s All Yours, Just Ask” and see the library as a place to help strengthen our city through strong connections and constructive dialogue. We are here to help community members find what they need, no matter who they are, where they come from, or what they’re looking for, because the Springfield City Library is their place of connection to information and knowledge, culture, and community.
This position is based at our busy Central Library and is responsible for providing reference and information services to the public, updating and managing the library website, and supervising the library’s participation in the Funding Information Network. The Digital Services Librarian is also responsible for digital collections and services and training in their use. Candidates should have an ALA-accredited MLS and 2 years of experience in a public library setting. Excellent customer service orientation is needed, and a “turned outward” approach to community engagement is ideal. Bilingual abilities desirable (English and Spanish, Russian, Vietnamese or other).
