Due to an impending retirement, the Board of Trustees of the Pittsylvania County Public Library is seeking a dynamic and innovative director to continue to introduce new services and service locations for 60,000 residents across our 978 square mile county. Overseeing a staff of 30 employees at one main library, three branch libraries, a history research center, and a bookmobile, the director oversees and manages a $1.3 million budget and a collection of more than 100,000 physical items and multiple digital offerings. The successful candidate will oversee daily library operations and administrative duties, provide leadership and guidance to library managers and staff, build strong collaborative relationships with public officials and community leaders, and instill a forward-thinking, innovative, community-centered vision for the future of the Pittsylvania County Public Library.

 

Immediate priorities for the incoming director include the completion of a branch library renovation and the addition of expanded outdoor features. Building on established and new funding sources, long term plans include additional capital projects for new library branches to grow with the county.

 

Pittsylvania County is located along Virginia’s “Southside” between Smith Mountain Lake and the cities of Lynchburg and Danville. Headquartered in the beautiful county seat of Chatham, the library has branches in the town of Gretna in the center-north of the county and in the Brosville/Cascade and Mt. Hermon communities surrounding the city of Danville to the south. The region is known for its agricultural, tobacco, and textile heritage. The Olde Dominion Agricultural Complex hosts horse and cattle shows, bull riding and rodeos, motor cross and musical events that draw over 100,000 visitors annually. Water enthusiasts enjoy canoeing or rafting on the Dan and Staunton rivers, or boating and fishing on the 32 square miles of deep water on Smith Mountain Lake. Chatham is 20 miles from Danville, 50 miles from Lynchburg, and 55 miles from Roanoke, VA.

 

This position requires a Masters in Library Studies from an ALA accredited school, the ability to obtain a Virginia Librarian’s Professional Certificate within six months of employment, and three years of managerial experience.
