The Grand Prairie Public Library System is seeking a dynamic, upbeat and forward-thinking individual with experience in early childhood education and a passion for community development and engagement. OurChildren’s Outreach and Special Projects Programmer will be responsible for establishing and maintaining partnerships across our community delivering regular presentations and children’s programs outside of the library. This person will focus on developing, implementing and measuring sustainable programs and will lead approximately 4-8 programs per week, many of these focusing specifically on babies and toddlers. This position will also be responsible for overseeing our Summer Reading Club programming in addition to other special projects inside our libraries. 


Our library system is progressive and our programming is often non-traditional. Our Programming Team is fun, diverse and hardworking. We are looking for a new member who is self-motivated, highly-organized and able to respond effectively to the needs of our community. This position is perfect for anyone with an expertise in early childhood education (teachers, therapists, social workers) who wants to make a difference. Programming and outreach will continue to look irregular in the time of COVID, but we are hoping to find a candidate who is creative, resourceful and wants to make the most of our current challenges. Work will include some desk shifts at the library and semiregular evening and weekend work. This position is full time with benefits. A master’s degree in education, library science or a related field is required.
