Would you like to call Greenwich Library “My Library” and Greenwich, CT “Your Community?” Greenwich Library seeks a Resources Manager who is committed to maintaining collections that “provide the community with a window to the past and a view to the future.” The successful candidate will be knowledgeable, passionate and engaged about the role libraries play in individual lives and the community—and will share that expertise and enthusiasm as a member of the Library’s leadership team providing strategic direction for the library’s print and non-print/digital collections. In addition to expanding current collections, the resources manager will also integrate emerging media into the collections, develop enhanced discoverability, understand and promote the vitality of local collections and know best practices for content creation.

Greenwich Library, a “community treasure,” is committed to both its local and global community. Library Journal’s five star Library, through its ambitious new strategic plan, “Connecting Our Community,” serves 62,755 residents through its Main library (104,000 s/f) and two branch libraries. A dedicated staff of 157 (93 FTE), a collection of nearly half a million items and a $9.2 million annual budget from public and private sources enable the Library to circulate 1.4 million items and host 745,000 visitors.

Founded in 1640, Greenwich is known as the Gateway to New England. A town of neighborhoods, Greenwich is listed as one of the top 100 places to live in the United States (CNN and Money Magazine). Just 38 miles from Manhattan and easily accessible on the Metro-North Rail Line, it is known for its hedge fund industry, public and private school system and health care. Ethnic and cultural and economic diversity are noteworthy; 24% of the population speaks a language other than English in their homes. Greenwich’s recreational amenities include beaches, a symphony, and an active arts council. Located in Fairfield County, Greenwich successfully combines a cosmopolitan atmosphere with the friendliness of a small New England town. Additional information on the Library and the community can be found at Greenwich Links.

Minimum qualifications. A Master’s degree in Library Science or Information Science from an ALA accredited college or university, six years post master’s experience in professional library work including the selection, acquisition/deacquisition, licensing/contracting, cataloging and processing of library materials, and three years of library experience managing and directing librarians and professional library staff. Essential attributes include, but are not limited to, strong communication skills-both written and spoken; group presentation experience; a history of responsiveness to customer and community needs; supervisory experience; currency and knowledge of trends, issues and methods of information access to library resources as well as emerging technologies; and experience working in a union environment. Experience with Innovative Interfaces Sierra, BiblioCommons, implementing an RFID system and fluency in a second language (Japanese or Spanish) are also highly desirable. The Resources Manager will report to the Director and Deputy Director and work as a member of the Library’s leadership team providing strategic direction. Please see the Greenwich Library Resource Manager Job Description for additional details.

Compensation. Salary range of $80,869 -$104,346 (placement dependent upon qualifications) and an excellent fringe benefits package.
