Whanganui District Library is looking for someone highly self-motivated, able to work independently and to use their initiative appropriately to join the team. The Learning and Discovery Librarian will design and deliver programmes, events and initiatives that promote all forms of literacy and enjoyment of reading, and advance opportunities for equitable access to technology services so that all members of the community can be active digital citizens.

You will be working alongside colleagues promoting and delivering services to adults and children and will have a demonstrable commitment to continuous learning and improvement. Excellent people skills, preferably with experience as part of a customer service team, are a prerequisite for the role. A high level of digital confidence, and experience in different learning environments, is also essential.
