Position Description: The Board of Directors of the Rosenberg Library in Galveston, Texas is seeking its next Executive Director, an accomplished leader who will continue the Library's long tradition of serving the community. Rosenberg Library Association is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization which receives operating funds from the City of Galveston, but must rely on donations and grants from private individuals and foundations for major capital improvements and repairs to the building. A carefully managed endowment also provides a portion of the Rosenberg Library's annual operating income.

The Library: Rosenberg Library is the oldest public library in Texas in continuous operation. With funding provided through a bequest from Henry Rosenberg, the Rosenberg Library Association was organized as a private corporation in 1900 to give free library service to all Galvestonians.

The Library is governed by a board of twenty trustees, who meet annually to elect a nine-member board of directors. In addition to a wide array of public library services, the beautifully restored 75,000 square foot Rosenberg Library building also houses one of the most important archives in the state on the history of Galveston and the early settlement of Texas up through the Civil War. There is also a large collection of art and artifacts along with meeting rooms for public use, a very active children's department with on-going activities and a technology department with state-of-the-art equipment available to the public. The Library has a $4.6M operating budget and a staff of 39 FTE. Rosenberg Library also serves as the headquarters for the Galveston County Library System, a federated library system of eight independent public libraries.
