Before you get the opportunity to read through my past library experiences I would like to express why I not only desire, but would be well equipped for this wonderful job opportunity. My specific studies for my degree focused around youth services, but I also discovered a real passion for youth services, collection development and information technology.
These interests have blossomed and evolved as I have done so in my career. After graduation with my masters I worked for the Kent District Library system as a youth services professional. Not only did working with youth of all ages teach me creativity and flexibility, it also instilled within me a joy for working with youth and helping others develop information skill.
Later on, when I was hired to be the head librarian at a school system, these traits helped paved the way for my successful teaching of library and information studies to 5th and six grade students.
Working at the school was a fantastic experience. I continually worked effectively with the staff and facility to highlight the library and the services offered.
As the director I manage employees, work with the city departments, develop relationships with our nonprofit, board, and volunteers. My daily activities are essentially linked with my ability to communicate and work well with others.
I am an experience youth services librarian who is always looking for new, innovative and creative ways help the library and inspire youth participation in the library system. I consider myself to be a relatable individual who is heavily invested in the success of the library.
Technology is something I live and breathe. It is incorporated it into many facets of my life and work. I tirelessly try to stay current with new advancements in technology and libraries.
During my time as director I have used those skills to make the library more mobile though the creation of an innovated website, social media and apps. It is important for me to be involved and continually learning. Beside teaching and work experience I am a multifaceted young woman who has never been accused of being dull or lacking wit.
I cherish my creativity, ingenuity, intelligence, optimism and devotion to any task I set my mind too.
Hard work is my life style and I am always searching for new ways to stay active and useful. I am incredibly punctual, self motivated and able to multitask while still keeping a strict schedule. I truly appreciate considering me for this job opportunity.
