Douglas County is seeking a Library Director. Under the direct supervision of the Library Board of Trustees, the Library Director leads the organization, collaboratively developing and implementing the Library’s strategic vision and plan, and ensuring the fulfillment of the Library’s mission and future success. The next Library Director will demonstrate four key characteristics: Unifier, Community-Oriented, Collaboration, and Data Driven. The Douglas County Public Library must confront complex internal and external challenges. A successful Library Director will have the capacity to respectfully manage diverging views and unify stakeholders with a common purpose. Douglas County has many distinctive traits, and a successful Director needs to recognize this community’s unique opportunities and challenges. This quality will be particularly valuable as the Library seeks to build community partnerships to augment creative service offerings to the community. A successful Director will need to know how to listen, take in feedback from many perspectives, and help people feel heard, even if their input is not ultimately acted upon. Equally as important is the ability to communicate decisions and manage change in a way that builds trust. A successful Director will also be skilled in collecting, analyzing, and using data to deliver high-quality library programming.
