OhioNet strives for continuous innovation in discovery and sharing of best practices focused on strengthening each library and responding to the needs of its members. To meet these objectives OhioNet seeks a dynamic, effective, and forward-thinking leader to serve as its next Executive Director and CEO.

The Executive Director/CEO leads the identification, creation, delivery, and assessment of high-quality, cost-effective programs and services that solve OhioNet members’ problems and needs. This is achieved by building collaborative relationships across the library community in the state and region to improve members’ delivery of library services.

The Executive Director/CEO provides management oversight of OhioNet business operations, including membership growth and retention efforts.
