Columbia, SC; Librarian, Richland School District

Hi School Librarians!
My position as a middle school library media specialist in Richland Two (in Columbia, SC is available!) If you want an extremely flexible position where you can do all of the library programming you dream of, this is truly it!!! The support and team I work with are the Dream Team! Note that our district staffs full time Technology Specialist in each school as well as the Library Media Specialist. Again, this allows me to focus on Library Programming. It is with a very heavy heart that I have to step away from librarianship for now. I would love to speak with you about the position and give you insight : ) Position just posted (6/19)
