Library Supervisor - Adult and Technical Services

This position oversees 14 full-time and a handful of part-time staff members in two separate work areas: Adult Services and Technical Services. Most of the staff are professional librarians. Each of the two work areas is led by a Librarian II who reports to the supervisor. The Adult and Technical Services Supervisor is one of three supervisors on staff and sits on the six-member management team.

Here’s what we’re looking for:

  • Librarian with a Master’s Degree in Library Science and three or more years of professional experience in a public library setting, at least one of which is at a supervisory or management level
  • Skilled communicator and collaborator
  • Experienced manager who can support staff in doing their best work
  • Creative problem solver
  • Dedicated provider of excellent service to all people in the community

The ability to lead and manage staff is essential for this position. Like many public libraries, DPL is experiencing a great deal of change with staff retirements, evolving services, and opportunities provided by new technology. Library supervisors are expected to clearly convey goals and expectations to staff in their work area while bringing forward staff needs and suggestions to the rest of the management team. Library supervisors must work well with a diverse group of patrons from all backgrounds.
