Public Library Director - Morris, MN

Morris Public Library is seeking a Library Director. 

Summary: The Morris Public Library is a city library located in west central Minnesota with a staff of 4.40 FTE and an annual operating budget of around $330,000. Over the last several years, the library staff has worked to expand programming, especially for children and teens, and added materials and programs for the community’s growing Spanish-speaking population. The library has many strong community partnerships, including one with the local farmer’s market, which is hosted on the library lawn throughout the summer. The Morris Public Library is open 54 hours per week, has 66,000 circulating items, and has an annual circulation of more than 114,000 items. The library is also part of the Viking Library System Horizon ILS with Enterprise as the discovery layer. The Library Board of Directors is in the early stages of looking at a building renovation or expansion to make sure the library continues to serve the changing needs of the community. We are looking for a library director who can maintain the quality programming and collections we already have, while also helping shape a community library of the future.
