My Work

I will become actively involved in my work as a curious and learning individual, while being a supportive and practicing professional librarian supporting my colleagues and library users. I will be active and involved with planning, developing, and maintaining programs, services, and collections for adult and teen library users. My sense of community and community activism will lead me to attend meetings of partner organizations, actively participate in community events, and provide support and knowledge to all my partners. My sense of wonder and curiosity will propel me to explore and experiment with events, exhibits, and diverse ways of connecting people to ideas, information, and each other both in the library and community. I advocate for a library that is open to all. I recognize that library users and all people are human and can be challenging at times, but I manage interactions with professionalism and demonstrate patience. I will work at any/all points of service, though I generally will do my work in an area that best suits my talents and aptitudes.

As a Librarian I will support the work of the Library and any specific subject matter areas as identified or assigned, based upon present and future community needs, resources, staff expertise, and innovative practices related to a subject area and/or library and information science.

My Role in a Learning Organization 

I know that to a library user I am the library, whether I am on the job, riding a bus, or checking out at the grocery store.  I have a positive mental attitude and enthusiastic role for the work I do.  I display initiative to delight a customer with extraordinary customer service. I communicate with library users, colleagues, community members in an effective, enthusiastic and respectful manner.  I am honest and act with integrity and respect.

I have a team role and work collaboratively with colleagues and other teams. I strive to have good organizational skills and work well under pressure. I am dependable and hardworking.

I have a career development role and am a curious learner and am willing to learn and develop new skills.

I have an innovator and continuous improvement role and strive to make practical suggestions for workplace improvments.  I am self-motivated, persistent, and intuitive about the work I do. 

What I Need to Know to Be Successful

I need to have a Master's degree from a school of library and/or information science program accredited by the American Library Association, and moderate experience working in a library and/or within the area of practice assigned.

I understand that if I have related education and experience, the Library may consider me for the position if I commit to obtaining my Master's degree as described within three years of starting my work.

I need to obtain and maintain through professional development credits Indiana State Library professional librarian accreditation.

I need a valid driver's license.
