want to be a library director in Indiana?

Received this email today--looking to become a director? Don't mind moving to Indiana?

My name is Karen Miller and I am a consultant with
Bradbury Associates/Gossage Sager Associates-an executive search firm working exclusively in the library field.  We are currently assisting the Board of Trustees of the Ohio Township Public Library System in Newburgh, IN, with its search for its next Library Director, and we are reaching out to the Ohio library leadership to seek suggestions for potential candidates. 

Ohio Township Public Library System is an independent district with a tax rate exclusively dedicated to public library service.  Governed by a seven-member Board of Trustees, the Library staff of 50 serves the 37,749 citizens in Ohio Township with a $2 million dollar annual budget. The Library consists of the new Central Library, and two branch facilities: Chandler, located in the town of Chandler; and Newburgh, located in a 1984 building fronting the Ohio River. The challenge for the next director will be to forge strong community relationships and partnerships while leading a motivated staff to further serve the community effectively.  Ohio Township, consisting primarily of the cities of Newburgh and Chandler, is located in southwest Indiana in Warrick County. Nestled against a bend in the Ohio River, this community has deep historical roots, small town charm, and a thriving waterfront. City amenities are easily accessible - Indianapolis, Nashville, St. Louis and Louisville are all within a few hours’ drive.  For additional information, please visit Ohio Township Links

Minimum qualifications include an ALA-accredited Master's Degree in Library Science; the ability to obtain and retain an Indiana Librarian Certificate 2; and a minimum of three years of relevant library experience which includes supervision of staff. Successful experience as a library director reporting to a governing board is desirable. The hiring salary range is $62,000 – 74,000 (dependent upon experience and qualifications) with a competitive benefits package. 

If you have any suggestions or nominations for possible candidates that you feel might be qualified and interested in the position, please let us know--we would welcome your suggestions. Or, if you are interested in the position, we would welcome your cover letter and resume.

Thanks in advance for your consideration and we look forward to hearing from you.

Best regards,

Karen
