Library Directors

The U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) predicts that employment of librarians will grow more slowly than the average for all careers through 2024. Despite this prediction, employment opportunities for qualified library directors should be good. Although library directors will be in demand in a variety of library settings, the DOL predicts that opportunities for library professionals will be best in nontraditional settings such as private corporations, nonprofit organizations, and consulting firms. As always, library directors with the most education and experience will have the best employment opportunities.
