The Board seeks a Library Director who will inform, inspire and delight its 40,000+ residents through exciting programming, a dedicated staff making a difference, a vital Friends of the Library group, and strong collections – all through a beautiful, historic building (listed on the Michigan Register of Historic Places), in vibrant downtown Muskegon.
