Executive Director – Henderson (NV) District Public Libraries

Looking for ‘A place to call home’? The Henderson (NV) District Public Libraries Board of Trustees is in search of a knowledgeable, visionary leader to serve as their future Executive Director. The Executive Director will work with the Library Board, staff and stakeholders to cultivate a literate community by providing every citizen free access to books and information resources, as well as state of the art technology that supports work, school, and recreational activities. This position is an excellent opportunity to join a thriving, engaged community.

Governed by a seven-member, appointed Board of Trustees, Henderson is a dynamic library system serving the 270,000 residents of Henderson, NV and operates as an independent governmental unit under Nevada law. With a $6.8 million budget, Library staff (approximately 77 FTEs) operate 3 full-service libraries and one limited-service library located inside the City of Henderson’s Heritage Park Senior Facility. Henderson Libraries circulated 1.7 million items in 2012 to its 106,000 card holders. Emphasis is placed on helping the community’s young people succeed through early literacy services, free homework help resources, a large teen volunteer program, and the annual Summer Reading Program.

Henderson, Nevada—the second largest city in Nevada—has been recognized as one of the best places to live in America. The city is in an ideal location, with quick access to the glitter of the strip, but also just a few miles away from the beauty of Mount Charleston. You will also find an abundance of cultural events, special attractions, miles of trails and recreational facilities as well as renowned resorts, shopping, and restaurants. More than 16 public and private post-secondary educational institutions are within a convenient distance. The City’s commitment to high quality public service and well-planned communities round out the reasons why Henderson is a premier community to work, live and play.

Additional coursework in business administration, public administration or a related field and successful experience reporting to a governing board are desirable.
