Branch Supervisor, Springfield City Library (Springfield)

The Mason Square Branch Library is one of the busiest in our City! Help set the vision for the branch and play an important role in carrying it out. The branch is a lovely midcentury building with a large Community Room for programming and performances. Outside you'll find our Community Gardens, more programming space, and a freshly painted mural, part of Fresh Paint Springfield's mural festival. The branch is truly the hub of the neighborhoods that surround it. See inside here:

The Branch Supervisor at our Mason Square Branch Library is responsible for assisting the Branch Manager in the everyday functioning of the library.  This includes staff supervision, public interaction, programming, facility management, and administrative duties.  Work is performed with latitude in the exercise of independent initiative and judgment in collaboration with the Branch Manager.  Supervision is exercised over a team of six people.

The Supervisor is responsible for community engagement, managing and staffing the reference and public service areas, planning and implementing programming, and oversight and reporting of building and facility problems.
