Highland Park Seeks Full-Time Librarian

Do you like books? Do you have a master’s degree in library science? Would you like to work close to home?

If you answered yes to all three questions, then I have an opportunity for you. Highland Park is looking to hire a second full-time librarian. Bonnie Case, who’s been the town’s librarian as long as I’ve been alive, told me a part-time employee recently retired, and that open position has been upgraded to a full-time gig.

“This will be the first time the library has hired a second person with a Master of Library Science — at least during the past 50-plus years,” Case said. “Not sure about 1930 to ’60 or so.”

The salary range will depend on the applicant’s qualifications is $88,000 to $115,000. Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to go torment myself about never getting a master’s degree.
