OPENING: Library Service Lead

At Pines & Plains Libraries (P&PL), we believe in empowering Elbert County  citizens with the resources they need to achieve their aspirations.  We also believe in adapting to new ways and means by which people expect information.   A positive, “can do” attitude, as well as excellent service, are the means by which we deliver the best value to our customers.   The Elizabeth, Kiowa, and Simla branches of P&PL are seeking three motivated, service-minded, and team-oriented Library Service Leads (LSLs) to help bring our district to the next level.

This is where you come in.   The beginning of 2018 will mark a momentous time at P&PL, in which we will roll-out new technology, longer hours, additional programming, and more.  Under the supervision of the Branch Manager, the LSL will serve as the most knowledgeable, “go-to” service staff member for Library Service Technicians (LSTs).  LSLs will lead the team in the successful mastery of day-to-day operations, while also delegating tasks to achieve the completion of special projects.  The LSL will continually update their reader’s advisory, reference, and technology skills to adapt to a changing information environment, as well as to meet the wants and needs of P&PL customers.  As a team member who works 40 hours a week, the LSL will be a source of continuity, communication, and coordination for each branch, serving as the point person who ensures that branch and district initiatives are executed with timeliness and efficiency, while also making the library a welcoming and useful  environment.   The non-exempt position starts in January at $14.00/hour and receives medical, dental, and vision benefits.  Call 303-358-8820 or email simla@pplibraries.org for more details. All applicants should submit an application, resume, and cover letter, via email, to simla@pplibraries.org.  Paper submissions will be discarded.  Only packets complete with an application, resume, and cover letter; filled out on computer; and submitted via email attachment will be accepted. Please remember to download and save the application to your computer before you fill it out.  If you fill it out in the web browser, your information will be lost when you try to save it.
