Youth Services Librarian | Warrenville Public Library District

Posted on Apr 23, 2019

Warrenville Public Library District is looking for someone who is passionate about creating interesting and memorable experiences for children that will make them want to return to the library again and again. As the lead programmer for children in grades K–8, you’ll develop and present STEAM and literacy-based programs that encourage curiosity, imagination and exploration. You’ll work as part of a team to provide reference and readers advisory services and will have an active role in developing and maintaining an up-to-date and relevant collection. As a vital member of our Public Services Team, you’ll work collaboratively to support our Strategic Plan goals.

Located approximately 30 miles west of Chicago along I-88, Warrenville Public Library District serves a population of 15,000. An interior remodel of the Library's public spaces, including youth and adult services, was completed in 2017. The City of Warrenville enjoys easy access to the amenities of city living, but remains a quiet community surrounded by forest preserves and open spaces; the Illinois Prairie Path is just outside the Library's front door.
