Are you an energetic, dedicated leader who wants to be actively involved in the community you serve? If so, you may be the person to lead the Adrian (MI) District Library!
Due to retirement, the Board of Trustees is seeking an accomplished leader who will continue the nearly 150-year tradition of a positive, community-centered culture to become the Library's next Director. The Adrian District Library is an independent governing unit, serving a population of over 21,000 with an operating budget of nearly $1 million and a dedicated, enthusiastic staff of 12 (3 with the MLIS degree). The community demonstrated their continuing strong support for the Library with a positive vote for a 10-year operational millage in May 2015. The Library building, in the heart of downtown Adrian, underwent a major renovation in 2009, adding 3200 square feet that includes a Teen Zone, a quiet seating area in the Loft, a Café, and a renovated Tween space in the Youth Services area.
Adrian is located in southeast Michigan, and is home to Adrian College and Siena Heights University, as well as a satellite campus of Jackson College. Detroit, Ann Arbor, and Toledo are all within an easy drive.
