Description

Are you the person that your family and friends come to for book and movie recommendations? Do you have a passion for library programming for adults? Are you creative, knowledgeable, collaborative, and enthusiastic?  As part of our team, you will connect library users with their interests and information needs. Our ideal candidate demonstrates knowledge of the recreational and informational needs of the community, will be able to successfully develop original and engaging programs, create and maintain dynamic displays, select materials of interest to adults, contribute online book recommendation lists, provide outreach to the community, assist with summer reading, and answer questions at our Circulation Desk.

The Churchill County Library places a high value on applicants who have formal education in Library Sciences. Those candidates who have obtained an ALA-accredited Master's in Library Science (MLS) will receive first consideration. The county will also give strong consideration to candidates who have obtained Public Library Certification from the State of Nevada or students in an ALA-accredited MLS program who have finished at least half the program and are continuing to work towards achieving their MLS. The State of Nevada requires the person in this position to possess an MLS or the State of Nevada Public Librarian Certification.

The Churchill County Library connects our community with information, ideas, and opportunities to support lifelong learning, personal growth, and community development. We believe that a library’s most important resource is a talented, quality staff who work collaboratively to implement new and innovative approaches to providing library service.  If this sounds like a good match for your skills and abilities, consider applying for our Adult Services Librarian position.

Churchill County has an attractive compensation package that extends beyond just the salary. The county pays 100% of the retirement contribution to Nevada PERS on your behalf (33.5% over and above your wage, equivalent to $18,400/year). The county pays 100% of the employee-only health insurance premiums (equivalent to $11,050/year). AND you will not have Social Security taken out of your paycheck, which results in an additional 6% take-home pay (equivalent to $3,300/year).  

If you are interested and think you qualify, submit your application online at www.churchillcounty.org/careers by 3:00 PM on March 20, 2024.
