Located on Long Island Sound with direct access to the Atlantic Ocean, New London is home to three colleges, a food coop, a farmer's market, numerous coffee shops, a vibrant art and restaurant scene and Ocean Beach, a 50-acre park with a white sand beach and a 1/2 mile boardwalk. The main Amtrak line between Boston and New York stops three blocks from the library.

Requirements include a MLS/MLIS from an ALA accredited school and five years of professional public library work, including at least three years of managerial experience. Strong second language skills (English/Spanish) a plus. Some evenings and weekends required.

Starting salary range is $72,000 - $78,000, depending on experience and qualifications, with a competitive employee benefits package.
