Library Director-St. Mary's County (MD) Library
"My place to learn, discover, relax!" Continue to honor St. Mary
<http://www.stmalib.org/> 's County Library's commitment to its County
residents as its next Library Director. The stellar staff, services, and
programs under its retiring Director have made the Library the heart and
soul of its communities. The Library Board of Trustees seeks a proactive
Director to continue providing cutting edge technology, exploration and
experimentation as it builds a replacement for the Leonardtown Library (an
$11 million project approved in 2015). The successful candidate will be a
community collaborator, a staff advocate, a tireless cheerleader for
external partnership development, and an energetic colleague working with a
seven-member governing Board of Trustees. St. Mary's County Library serves
110,000 residents with a dedicated staff of 64 (46 FTEs) and a $3.4 million
annual operating budget from three distinct and unique libraries throughout
the County-Charlotte Hall, Lexington Park, and Leonardtown.
St. Mary <http://www.co.saint-marys.md.us/> 's County-where the Potomac
meets the Chesapeake-is centrally located in the Mid-Atlantic corridor close
to Washington, D.C., Annapolis and Baltimore. A beautiful peninsula home to
crabbing, fishing, and farming, St. Mary's County is also home to the
high-tech Naval Air Station Patuxent River (its largest employer) and has a
deep appreciation of its combined focus on its historical foundations and
its dynamic outlook. St. Mary's County both honors its maritime heritage and
its agricultural heritage while moving forward with its progressive
technology-based workforce. Living in St. Mary's County-Maryland's
birthplace-provides an unequaled quality of life and varied lifestyles and
environments. From its large Amish presence and the many local produce
stands to higher education opportunities-St. Mary's College, the College of
Southern Maryland, and the Southern Maryland Higher Education Center-St.
Mary's County offers something for everyone. Housing stock includes farms,
suburban acreage, waterfront living, and urban condos and townhomes. Local
public education is excellent and outdoor recreation is virtually unlimited.
