About this Job
This part-time (80%, annual salary of $46,205) Youth Services Librarian position is a permanent position based out of the Hawthorne Library and will serve youth on the Eastside of Madison. This position will focus on collaborations with many key community partners as well as working with neighborhood residents and the Neighborhood Resource Team (NRT) to identify community needs and develop engaging learning opportunities for youth and families in this neighborhood.
The Hawthorne Youth Services Librarian will coordinate, collaborate and work closely with the Hawthorne Library Branch Supervisor and staff to provide assistance and programming for youth both inside and outside of the library building. This position is also part of an exceptional citywide Youth Services team who strategically coordinate services throughout all nine Madison neighborhood libraries and in outreach locations across the City of Madison.
Master's degree in library and/or information science/studies from an ALA accredited library school.
The Madison Public Library is an award-winning library system, dedicated to celebrating ideas, promoting creativity, connecting people, and enriching lives. Working for Madison Public Library means working alongside a highly talented and truly outstanding group of people. And, we don't just excel in traditional library services: The Bubbler has received national attention for taking the makerspace concept into new and exciting directions; our Youth Services Librarians are teaching educators, home-visiting nurses and neighborhood center staff about literacy best-practices for youth; and Community Engagement Librarians are collaborating with local experts to offer classes for businesses, job skills, and technology classes for adults. Our spaces also shine, with a new community kitchen supporting youth nutrition and community meals at our Meadowridge Library, while the fully equipped Media Lab in our Central Library uses experts in the field to teach everything from audio engineering to video game design to Photoshop. Madison Public Library is bigger than our buildings, though – our focus is community engagement and empowerment – both within and outside the library walls. We are in the business of changing lives.
