 A very desirable Library Director position has become available due to the untimely death of our former Director, Bruce Guy. Though we are a small community - the population of our service area is only 26,000 - we really ARE community, not just a place to live and work.
 Gladwin County District Library encompasses the entire county of Gladwin. It operates two libraries: one in Gladwin and one in Beaverton. It has enjoyed strong support from both its patrons and its voters. Our operating millage was renewed through 2025 with 61% voting yes. Despite the tough economic times of recent years, both of our library facilities have been upgraded, while maintaining balanced budgets and strong fund equity. Our staff is highly qualified and even more highly motivated - this is certainly not a one-horse operation. An active Genealogy Society provides hundreds of hours of volunteer staffing and research assistance each month in our large, well-provisioned local and family history research facility. Each library has a large, well-equipped Children's library, and boasts modern, well-appointed meeting rooms. Friends of the Gladwin County District Library provides plenty of support for library extras by hosting semi-annual used book sales. We are also very proud of the participation rate in library programs for adults and children. Please note our statistics as posted below.
 Our community boasts an active and very affordable housing market, top-notch schools with successful academic and athletic programs, indoor and outdoor recreational opportunities, excellent medical facilities, and plenty of employment opportunities for spouses and other family members. Our population is stable with a good mix of the old families and the more recent. We are small enough to get to know everybody, but large enough to find privacy when you want it. There are churches of virtually every major denomination , and non-denominational as well.
 In short, Gladwin County is a great place to live, a fabulous place to raise a family, and a supportive place for you to prosper and grow both professionally and personally.  If you appreciate the pace and space of small communities over the hectic tempo of larger cities, perhaps you should consider making your life and your work here in Gladwin County.
 Please see the details of our position posting in the linked PDF file.
