We seek an Executive Director to lead our thriving non-profit library, located in Vermont’s busy state capitol and serving six communities in the capitol region. The Executive Director is the chief executive officer of the Kellogg-Hubbard Library and reports to the Board of Trustees. The Executive Director is responsible for the Library’s consistent achievement of its mission and financial objectives, including maintaining its tradition of outstanding public service and innovative program offerings. Together with the Library Director and the Board of Trustees, the Executive Director ensures that the Library meets the current needs of its patrons and local communities; develops and strives to achieve a long-term vision for the Library; and positions the Library for long-term financial and operational success. The Executive Director has overall responsibility for the organization and specific oversight of the areas of finance, member town relationships, fundraising, and human resources. The right candidate will have a wide range of skills, from high-level oversight to task-level management; a commitment to promoting diversity, equity and inclusion as part of the Library’s mission; and experience in nonprofit management.
Applicants should note that this is a planned shift from a co-director model to an executive director; library policies that currently reflect the co-director model will be updated as needed.
