Job Title: Chief Customer Officer/Library Director

Job Description: The Charlotte Mecklenburg Library, located in the most populated, and the most densely populated, county and city in North Carolina, serves hundreds of thousands of Mecklenburg County’s diverse population of approximately 1,100,000, while also responding to the needs of individual library visitors. With 6.9 million residents within 100 miles, Mecklenburg County and Charlotte lie in the heart of a region that is the sixth largest urban area in the US and the Library’s role as a provider of lifelong education in the community has never been more relevant and timely. Although the Charlotte Mecklenburg Library receives a substantial amount of funding from Mecklenburg County, the Library operates as a separate organization with its own Board of Trustees. Today, the Library’s 20 locations include a Main Library, an innovative library for children and teens called ImaginOn, and a network of branch libraries throughout the County that employ approximately 480 individuals. Throughout the system, as it has done since its founding, the Library continues to provide free and open access to its physical and electronic collections and information, as well as to its services for people of all ages, from toddlers to teens to adults. After embarking on a collaborative project, called Blueprint 2025, to envision its future, the Library seeks to accomplish its mission (improve lives and build a stronger community) and reach its vision (the essential connector of a thriving community of readers, leaders, and learners) by focusing on three guiding principles – an Essential Community Connector, a Welcoming Place to All, and a Destination for Learning. As such, the emerging theme for the Library is the Library as Public Commons. Reporting directly to the Chief Executive Officer and serving as an officer of the Library and a member of the Strategic Planning Committee, the Chief Customer Officer/Library Director will lead the delivery of professional library collections, materials, programs, and services to the community. Along with the CEO, the Chief Customer officer will also represent the Library to the library profession at the local, state and national levels. Direct reports include: Robinson-Spangler Carolina Room Leader; Education Leader; Outreach Channel Leader; Digital Channel Leader; Branch Channel leader; and the Circulation Leader. Specific duties include, but are not necessarily limited to: strategic leadership, operating leadership, organizational development, board and volunteer development, resource development, financial stewardship, and brand development.

Qualifications: The ideal candidate will be a proven leader with demonstrated success in the delivery of complex public library services to urban and suburban communities.
