This is a full-time professional management position responsible for the supervision of the 15 FTE Library Assistant and Page Support Staff.  General duties include staffing the Circulation desk to maintain high standards of customer service and meet the needs of the public, training staff in appropriate computer applications including the ILS, overseeing materials processing and shelf management, and coordinating support services with other Library departments.

A four-year college degree is required.  An MLS is preferred. Minimum five years’ supervisory experience of a staff five in number or larger is necessary.  Fluency in Word and Excel is expected.  An ability to speak and write effectively and clearly is assumed.  A true commitment to excellent patron and public service in a contemporary library setting is a must. Familiarity with Sirs-Dynix Symphony is a plus.  Experience working in a union environment is desired.

The employee will be required to work 35 hours per week with one evening per week and one Saturday per month.  Benefits include New York State Retirement, health insurance, 403b plan, plus vacation, personal and sick leave.  Salary commensurate with experience.
