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
#librarymade 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.
