The New York Public Library (NYPL) has been an essential provider of free books, information, ideas, and education for all New Yorkers for more than 100 years. NYPL’s neighborhood libraries in the Bronx, Manhattan, and Staten Island—many of which date to Andrew Carnegie’s visionary philanthropy at the turn of the 20th century—are being transformed into true centers of educational innovation and service, and vital community hubs that provide far more than just free books and materials.
The Bronx Library Center is seeking a Children’s Librarian to empower children from infant through pre-teen to become creative thinkers, enthusiastic readers, skillful researchers, and resourceful users of information. Successful candidates will embody each of these four characteristics themselves.
Librarians start at $51,224 per year and are eligible in 6 months for an increased salary of $56,387, based on successful job performance.
Under the supervision of the Unit Head for Children’s Services, the Children’s Librarian engages children through collections, services, and programs in ways that allow them to follow their interests and discover new ones.
