Library Director-Romeo District Library (MI)


Looking for a Library District where you can make a difference? The Library
Board of Trustees of the Romeo District Library
<http://romeodistrictlibrary.org/>  seeks an experienced professional to
provide vision, leadership and consistency for the staff and community.
Romeo District Library is an independent taxing district with a perpetual
millage exclusively dedicated to public library service.  Governed by a
six-member Board of Trustees (representing the communities of Washington
Township, Bruce Township, and the Village of Romeo), the Library staff
(22FTE) serves the 33,839 citizens in the district with a $1.8 million
dollar annual budget. The Library consists of the Graubner Library and the
Kezar Branch--each with its unique character and excellent staff, programs
and services.  This is a library district ready to grow with its
communities, move forward with innovation while balancing tradition and
history, and be the best library it can be for its citizens. 


The village of Romeo <http://www.villageofromeo.org/>  is a charming mix of
old and new-the deep roots of its stately homes and historic downtown blend
with its continuing growth and development. Different living options
abound-from a quaint 100 year old home downtown, a modern home on a cul de
sac, or a working farm.  Its location provides easy access to a major
airport, excellent shopping, dining options, and good public schools.  The
community also celebrates its history of orchards and agriculture with the
annual Michigan Peach Festival of Romeo. For additional information, on the

library in the Romeo District as well as an internal leader and listener
with a focus on developing strategic directions for both community and
staff. For additional details, please see Director Job Description
