The Saline County Library is looking for a committed professional with a passion for public service to lead its Mabel Boswell Branch in Bryant, Arkansas.
Governed by a five-member Board, the Library serves the 107,000 Saline County residents with a dedicated staff of 32 FTEs and a $3 million annual operating budget from two locations – the Bob Herzfeld Memorial Library (Benton) and the Mabel Boswell Memorial Library (Bryant).
Saline County in central Arkansas is one of Arkansas' fastest growing and most prosperous counties. Ideally located near bustling Little Rock, Saline County residents enjoy a quality of life in their varied smaller cities and towns while appreciating the ready access to the entertainment, shopping, and cultural offerings of the state capitol. Saline County offers excellent school systems, as well as a University of Arkansas satellite campus, a growing hospital, retail and other amenities. Bishop Park in Bryant and the new Riverside Center in Benton provide the communities with access to fitness and aquatic facilities, baseball, soccer and multipurpose fields and the Girls and Boys Club. Other parks, waterways, golf courses, and the nearby Ouachita National Forest offer outdoor recreation. Saline County has it all – including a low cost of living and unemployment rate.
