Durango Public Library
Durango, CO

The City of Durango seeks a collaborative team-builder as the next Director of the Durango Public Library (CO).  Serving the 19,000+ residents of Durango from a 42,800-square-foot LEED Gold Certified building with a $2.8 million budget generated by a local joint sales tax, the new Director will have the opportunity to help write the library’s next chapter and demonstrate how a modern, nimble library is a vital resource for the community.  The ideal candidate will lead a staff of 21 FTE with a light-hearted approach that motivates staff; a commitment to being embedded in the community; and the ability to listen to diverse perspectives and foster programs and services that are reflective of Durango’s diverse community.  Key initiatives and opportunities include hiring a new Assistant Director, shaping library services post-COVID, leveraging relationships with surrounding library districts, maintaining a beautiful facility in an idyllic setting, developing a dynamic library culture, and being a part of the discussion exploring a shift of the library to a district model.
