Are you a creative professional deeply committed to collective impact?

This position requires a hands-on management approach, strong emotional intelligence, passion for service, and a bold, creative mind.

If you believe the public library is a driving force for community change, we want to hear from you. KPL is committed to diversity, equity and inclusion in its hiring practices.
