The Suffolk Public Library is more than just buildings full of books. We believe in connecting individuals and groups to information, ideas and experiences in any way possible, and we are looking for an innovative leader to help strengthen our ability to meet our patrons where they are. We want you to take our technology and collections to new heights to increase our ability to reach new audiences and meet the technological needs of our community as our Technology and Content Strategy Manager.
We are a library committed to meeting our patrons where they are in our city that spans 430 square miles in SE Virginia. We have solidified our commitment to addressing the quickly changing needs by making bold choices when it comes to technology and the resources we offer. Our Technology & Content Department includes staff and services working on creative and effective technological solutions, dynamic and responsive collections, and innovative acquisitions processes and tools. We want to connect the Suffolk community to us and to each other whether that is online or in-person. Our new 3D printers and upcoming #library-made initiative and the imminent purchase of a new Techmobile are just the beginning of exciting new projects that you could help lead.
Being a part of our team means that you have the characteristics of an innovator and a change-maker. You have fun while embracing challenges and solving problems. You are a passionate advocate for community-focused library services and are never satisfied with the status quo. You are on top of what is out there beyond the library world. You love working collaboratively, leading a dynamic team of staff to look for gaps in library services, resources and processes and finding ways in which to fill those gaps.
Master’s degree in Library and Information Science or closely related field and 3 to 5 years of related library experience and some supervisory experience; or any equivalent combination of education, training, and experience which provides the requisite knowledge, skills, and abilities for this job.
