Siouxland Library Hiring Soon

Siouxland Library Hiring Soon

Out of 70 retirements the city of Sioux Falls will see this year, the library is seeing three in the near future. The Siouxland Library is now looking at the job openings and seeing a bright future.

There are nearly 75 full-time employees at the 13 Siouxland Library branches and very soon some of those branches will have a "Now Hiring" sign on the door.

"Actually, we have some great opportunities coming up," Siouxland Library Director Mary Johns said.

Johns says soon, three employees will be celebrating retirement.

"While we're sad to see people go, we also recognize the value that they added," Johns said.

Like many departments in the city, the library is getting ready for applications to start flying in. Jane Hannestad, the Sioux Falls Human Resource Manager hopes people from across the region and the country have an eye on these openings.

"We're really trying to reach out to the community and beyond, as far as filling out positions and we would really love to diversify our workforce to look like our community," Hannestad said.

As for hiring at the library, Johns hopes to build on the sharp staff already in place.

"This is one talented and skillful and creative staff that we currently have and we want to build on that," Johns said.

Johns says two full-time positions will be opened up very soon. In total, this year she hopes to hire eight more people. For more information on job openings, click here.
