Want my job?

I've got some professional changes coming up, friends. Next week, I'll be relocating to the Chicago area to take a job in the Learning Experiences Department at Skokie Public Library. I'm excited about the change, but more on that later. It's not the main point of this post.

This post is to let you know that you can apply for my current job.

I've been at the Corporate Parkway Branch of the St. Charles City-County Library District for three years now, and it has been an outstanding first professional position. I could not have been more fortunate to start my career under a tremendously supportive branch manager, with an outstanding branch staff, and with the guidance and friendship of colleagues spread across all branches of the library district. Seriously. I would not have been able to be the Show Me Librarian without this job.

So if you're interested in a branch children's librarian position, take a look at the listing. It's open until August 31. And if you choose to apply, good luck!


Note: I'm sharing this job posting because I want as many people to see it as possible--I want the best possible person to take over in my great branch and continue serving an unbelievably wonderful community. I will have no influence on the hiring decision.


  1. Congratulations!! A fantastic position for you at a fabulous library.

  2. Congratulations on your new job! I can't wait to hear more about your new role. Also, we are in Chicago a lot as my inlaws live there so I hope we can meet up one trip!

    1. Thanks, Anne! Bonus points to Chicago that we could meet up when you're there!
