The Children’s Librarian works with the Library Director in managing the library and serving visitors of all ages and skill levels. The Children’s Librarian plans and manages all children’s programs and services and assists with overall collection development and management. Library children’s programs have been on hold since March 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, so this is an exciting opportunity to refresh and restart these community-building services.

The Helen Crocker Russell Library of Horticulture is northern California’s most comprehensive horticultural library and one of the major horticultural-botanical libraries in the western United States. The 27,000-volume collection covers all aspects of horticulture, including gardening, garden design, botanical art, ethnobotany and pest management with an emphasis on plants grown in Mediterranean and other mild-temperate climates. One of the most popular features of the collection is the 2,000 volume children’s botanical library, which includes books on plants, animals, natural history, and nature-related myths and stories. The Library offers a variety of programs for children and adults, and features rotating botanical art exhibitions.
