The Salt Lake City Public Library is currently recruiting candidates for the role of Executive Director. As a trusted public institution, we are taking great care to find candidates who will lead the Library into the future, while nurturing and maintaining everything that makes the Library exceptional. We are working with Koya Partners to facilitate the search, in order to make sure we find the best possible fit for the role.

The Salt Lake City Public Library (The City Library or SLCPL) is seeking an energetic, innovative, community minded, and collaborative leader for the role of Executive Director. The next Executive Director will be tasked with leading and amplifying SLCPL’s ongoing initiatives centered on diversity, equity, inclusion, and accessibility. The Executive Director will join a vibrant, diverse, and socially conscious urban community, a strong and passionate library team, a dedicated board, and partner organizations to lead SLCPL into the future. The new Executive Director will have an opportunity to develop and implement a strategic vision, while continuing to provide social and community resources that positively impact inclusiveness and well-being.

We plan to conclude the search by the fall of 2023.
