The Lebanon Public Libraries are seeking to hire an IT Librarian.
The salary range is $1109.20 - $1497.36 per week for this exempt full-time position, with excellent benefits. Starting salary will be commensurate with qualifications and experience. Lebanon is an equal opportunity employer.
Who we’d like to hire
The IT Librarian is required to have an MLIS. If you have experience supporting library computer systems, coding experience, and experience with AWS or a similar cloud environment those are all points in your favor. We really like people who are creative and are not afraid to try new things to make our library services better. This role has a high degree of autonomy and will help influence the direction of the Lebanon Public Libraries in the future.
What the job would be like for you
As our IT Librarian, you’ll be responsible for the management of the library's computer infrastructure. This includes public and staff workstations, staff laptops, chromeOS devices and our AWS infrastructure. You will work closely with our Systems Librarian to plan for future technology needs for the library. You will work regularly scheduled public service desk hours and are highly encouraged to do patron programming related to your interests and professional expertise. Managing our library computer systems will be your primary role, but our library will give you a good deal of autonomy to work on things that are interesting to you, even if they are outside of your officially defined job role.
About our community
Our library system is well supported by the community and consists of two libraries. The Kilton Public Library in West Lebanon opened in 2010 and was a Library Journal New Landmark Libraries Honorable Mention. The Lebanon Library in Lebanon is a Carnegie library built in 1909 with a 1985 addition. All library staff work at both locations. Governed by a board of trustees, the libraries are city funded with a 1.3 million dollar budget. We are also supported by a library foundation. As an institution that values both privacy and innovation, we were the first public library system in the U.S. to host a Tor exit node.
Lebanon is home to Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center, and Dartmouth College is located in neighboring Hanover. Marketwatch and livability.com have profiled Lebanon as one of America’s best small towns. Lebanon has views of the White Mountains, yet is less than a two-hour drive to the New Hampshire seacoast and Boston.
