APL Assistant Library Director Announcement

Assistant Library Director Announcement

We just built five gorgeous, state-of-the-art, fully stocked, green neighborhood libraries.
Want to help us run them?

Albany Public Library is seeking a dynamic, self-motivated, experienced professional to be our new Assistant Library Director. In this position, the Assistant Library Director reports to the Executive Director and is responsible for supervising public service departments and library security, and assisting with supervision of facilities management, grant writing, and development. Additional duties include: recommending policies and procedures, interpreting and negotiating contracts, recommending and implementing new programs and services, representing the library at community meetings and public events, participating in department budgets, and participating in recruitment and selection of library staff.

Albany Public Library is an urban system of seven libraries (six branches and a central library) serving a population of 95,000 in New York State’s capital. We just successfully completed a $29.1 million project to fully renovate three branch libraries and build two new ones. All of our statistics—from circulation and door count to computer usage and reference questions—are rising steadily with the addition of the new neighborhood libraries. We’re increasing programming across the board, exploring ways to reinvigorate our Main Library, and embarking on big projects that are destined to change how we deliver vital services. Our patrons are thrilled with their new neighborhood libraries, and we’re proud to serve as a beacon for their education, entertainment, and empowerment. The library has a publicly funded budget of $6 million and a staff of approximately 130 full time and part time employees.

We’re poised for big things here at Albany Public Library, and we need an
energetic and committed leader to help take us to the next level? Are you up to the challenge?
